Access, Services, and Staff

Most of Brooklyn Law School Library's research and reference materials do not circulate. The materials which do circulate are located primarily in the main and international collections on the lower level. Circulating materials may be borrowed upon presentation of a valid Brooklyn Law School identification card.

BLS Students and Staff may borrow circulating non-reserve materials for 30 days. BLS faculty members have extended borrowing privileges; please see the faculty library guide for details. Alumni and other visitors do not have borrowing privileges.

The following materials do not circulate to students:

  • Loose-leaf services 
  • Periodicals, bound or unbound
  • Federal, regional and state primary sources (court reports, statutes, codes, administrative material, etc.)
  • Finding tools (indexes, digests, dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc.)
  • Form books
  • Reserve and reference material

Certain heavily-used items, including current course materials and unbound periodicals, are kept on reserve behind the circulation desk. These materials may be borrowed for two hours, but must be used in the library.

Circulating materials not requested by another borrower may be renewed for an additional 30 days at the circulation desk. Circulating items may be requested online through our SARA catalog.

Renewals may be made by telephone or in person.

Anyone with borrowing privileges may also request that materials currently out on loan be reserved when the initial borrowing period ends. Such materials will be held as soon as they are returned and the requesting patron will be notified of their availability.

Audio and video cassettes or DVD's that are not on course reserve may be borrowed for 48 hours.
