The loan period for circulating materials is four weeks. Students must have their Banner ID number in order to check out materials. The following books do not circulate: materials on the first floor of the library (state materials, reporters, etc.); loose leaf materials, and serials. If you are unsure if the item you want can be checked out, please ask at the Circulation Desk.
*Please note that reserve materials can only be renewed in person.
NCCU Law affiliates may borrow resources not available at NCCU using the Law Library’s Interlibrary Loan service. To learn more about ILL, ILLiad, and to place a request, visit the ILL LibGuide. Law School faculty and staff can also use their ILLiad account to request email or office delivery of copies and materials from the NCCU Law Library collection.
Note: In the interest of maintaining good relations with the lending libraries, ILL due dates must be honored. If a borrower fails to return materials by the due date, the library may refuse ILL services in the future.
$25.00 is the maximum overdue fine charged for returned materials.
Patrons are responsible for the books they borrow and will be charged for damaged or lost books. Books are automatically declared lost and the patron is billed when the item is 21 days overdue. Student fines and fees will be applied to the students’ Banner account for payment through the Bursar’s Office.
Replacement costs for all books = $125 ($100 replacement fee + $25 processing fee)
Replacement costs for all DVD, VHS, and CD = $150 ($125 replacement fee + $25 processing fee)
When books have been damaged beyond repair (including highlighting, underlining or writing) or are known to be irretrievably lost, patrons may contact the Access Services Librarian to arrange replacement of the item. Replacement copies must be approved in advance.
If you have any questions about fines and billing, please email Jonathan Beeker, Access Services Librarian, or call 919-530-6608.
The law library keeps the newest editions of the most popular study aids, including Examples and Explanations, Q & A, and Understanding… series. The loan period for reserve materials is three hours unless otherwise specified. Promptly returning reserve materials is important to ensure equal access to the material. Therefore, failure to return Reserves items on time can result in the temporary suspension of your WestLaw account.
Some reserve materials may be checked out overnight. These materials may be checked out one hour before closing and must be returned within one hour of the Library’s opening the next day. Exceptions: North Carolina Bar Exams and the last copy of a permanent reserve title do not circulate overnight.
Faculty may place material on reserve for individual courses using the Course Reserve Request Form. Renewals for “Course Reserve” materials may be limited.
The Law Library aspires to continually develop its collection to support the research and instructional needs of the NCCU School of Law Community. To be successful in this goal, the Law Library welcomes recommendations for materials it should acquire. Please email recommendations to Nichelle J. Perry, Law Library Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who need assistance in retrieving or copying materials, access to the second floor of the library, or other services should ask for assistance at the circulation desk.
NCCU participates in a Triangle-wide consortium which includes the University of North Carolina (UNC), North Carolina State University (NCSU), and Duke University. Membership in this consortium gives NCCU students and faculty borrowing privileges at all TRLN Libraries. Go to TRLN’s website for directions to these libraries, hours of operation and circulation policies. Additionally, NCCU Law students and faculty can borrow materials directly from all academic libraries in the UNC system (including Community Colleges) with a valid NCCU identification card.
