Reserve Policies

The Reserves Room contains College of Law course reserves, audio tapes, video tapes and frequently used library materials such as hornbooks and nutshells.

To find a law course reserve item, please use the Online Catalog Course Reserve search form.  If you need to view a DVD, VHS tape or other media in the library, please bring it to the Circulation Desk for check out and to receive headphones (if needed) and directions to the nearest available equipment.  For more information about Reserves, please inquire at the Circulation Desk.

If you wish to remove items from the Reserves Room, please charge them out at the Circulation Desk with a valid Syracuse University or Environmental Science and Forestry ID.

Loan periods for law students are as follows:

  • Course Reserve items - two hours
  • DVDs, VHS & Audio tapes - one week
  • All other reserve materials, such as hornbooks and study guides - one week  (During the month leading up to finals, the loan period will be changed to a two hour loan period to ensure equal availability to all students.)

Reserve materials that are checked out less than two hours before closing must be returned within the first hour of opening the next day.

Please return Reserve materials promptly so that others may use them. Library staff will be monitoring late returns using the automated circulation system.

IMPORTANT: The overdue fine for audio and videotapes is $1 per day per item, up to a maximum of $15 per item. If items are more than 40 days overdue, a replacement fee will be added.
