Checking Out Library Materials

Borrowing Privileges

Full-time and visiting law faculty may borrow Law Library materials for the duration of their research projects. In addition, faculty research assistants may borrow books on a faculty member's behalf for the faculty member's use.

Your library liaison is happy to help you find any Law Library materials that you need and will deliver them to your office or mailbox. If you remove a book from the library yourself, please let your liaison know so the library can keep accurate records.

Adjunct law faculty members may borrow materials for a 21-day period. Contact

Recalling Materials Checked Out to Other Patrons

If Law Library materials you need are checked out to another library patron, contact

The Law Library maintains confidentiality of patron borrowing records; however, in the spirit of collegiality among the law faculty, you will be advised if the book is held by another law faculty member so that you can make your own arrangements. If the book is held by a student or non-law faculty member, a recall notice will be sent to the borrower.

Ordinarily, law faculty will not be asked to return borrowed items so they can be checked out by non-law faculty patrons.

Pepperdine Campus Loan

Full-time and visiting law faculty may request materials to be sent to the Law Library from other university libraries. Delivery can usually be made within 24 hours. Contact your library liaison for assistance.

Interlibrary Loan

If you need an item that is not available at Pepperdine, we may be able to obtain it for you from another institution. Materials usually arrive in 5-10 business days. Loan periods vary by lending institution, but are usually between two and four weeks. Renewals may or may not be granted depending on the policies of the lending institution. Contact your library liaison for assistance.
