The majority of books in the Mendik Library are research and primary source materials that may only be borrowed for short-term use. Other types of materials may be borrowed for longer periods.
Research & Primary Sources:
Monographs & Treatises:
Students can check their Library account and self-renew items that are due at http://lawlib.nyls.edu/. Once the items for renewal are selected, your record will be automatically updated and the system will display the new due dates in the “due” column.
To get into your record, you will need to enter your network username and password in the Library account login screen (similar to what you use for the NYLS portal).
To help students avoid overdue fines on treatises and monographs, the Library will send email courtesy reminder notices shortly before the item’s due date.
When you cannot locate an item you need in the Library Catalog, you may be able to borrow a book through Interlibrary Loan. You can access an online interlibrary loan request form on our webpage [under How Do I?]. If you have any questions, or require assistance, please contact the Reference Desk, or email the Interlibrary Loan department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interlibrary loan is a privilege that relies heavily on maintaining a good relationship with the lending libraries. Late return of books can damage our relationship with the lending libraries. Compliance with due dates is your responsibility.
Borrowers are responsible for any borrowing charges, overdue fines, or lost book fees charged by the lending institutions.
