Borrowing Materials: Law Journal Members

Most of the materials which you borrow for tech checks will be held in the journal office or on journal reserve. Please check with your editor for journal policy on where library materials should be kept or visit the journal research guide for journal specific information.

Law Materials

Law materials that circulate can either be placed on journal reserve or checked out to the Journal’s circulation record if they will be held in a journal office. Editors should check with Katharine Haldeman, x3-8412, to setup the contact information.

Law Non-Circulating and Reserve materials

In general these materials should be used in the library. Please see the Circulation Desk to make arrangements for short-term access or email lawlibraries@bu-law.libanswers.com.

Other BU Libraries’ Materials

The journal’s circulation record cannot be used at other BU libraries. You can either borrow materials on your personal BU ID, or email lawlibraries@bu-law.libanswers.com to ask that the materials be placed on reserve in the Law Library. Please check with your editor for journal policy.

When the material remains checked out to your account:

The campus libraries will notify you of the need to return the material for another patron’s use. If materials are returned after the due date, your record will be assessed for any fines accrued. In the event of the loss of the material, you will be assessed the replacement fee. You are responsible for any and all fines accrued on your personal account.

If the journal still needs the material and you receive a recall, please return the material to the owning library by the date requested and contact Katharine Haldeman, to arrange for an interlibrary loan replacement.

To protect your borrowing privileges and avoid late return fees please check your My Account record periodically to ensure that all the materials checked out in your name are current. Overdue materials at other libraries on campus are subject to late fines.
