You may place requests for most ASU-owned library materials by using the Request function in the library catalog.
Items with a 'Shelf' Status
The Law Library offers a free book retrieval service to College of Law students, faculty, and staff. Law Library staff will retrieve materials with a 'shelf' status from any library on the Tempe campus, including the Law Library. There is no limit on the number of items that can be requested through the book retrieval service. Items may also be requested from libraries on other ASU campuses (Downtown, West, and Polytechnic) to be sent to the Law Library for pickup. Most requests for available Tempe campus items are filled by the end of the next day. Materials sent from other campuses may take a few days to be delivered. You will receive an email when the requested items are ready for pickup.
Items that are Checked Out
If a Law Library item you would like to use is checked out, you may request the item and it will be held for you upon its return. Requesting a Law Library item will not change the due date (recall). Checked out materials owned by other ASU Libraries can also be requested through the library catalog. ASU Libraries materials are subject to recall and recall policies are strictly enforced.
To request materials:
If you need library resources (books, articles, dissertations, etc.) not owned by ASU, you may request the materials through Interlibrary Loan. To place an interlibrary loan request, use the online request form or fill out a paper form at the Law Library Circulation Desk. Questions about interlibrary loans should be directed to Carrie Henteleff at 480-965-7114.
Some tips for managing your interlibrary loan requests:
The Law Library's Interlibrary Loan Service is available only to College of Law students, faculty, and staff. ASU students may use the interlibrary loan services offered through ASU Libraries. Visitors and Community Card members should check the interlibrary loan services offered through their local public library.
