Patrons should contact the Circulation Desk for questions related to:
1. Borrowing library material;
2. Addressing library account issues;
3. Reporting problems within the library; and
4. Assistance in locating library material.
Circulating materials may be checked out by current Elon Law students, faculty, and staff.
Renewals may be placed on all circulating material if no holds are pending on said item. Materials may be renewed at the Circulation Desk, and a limited number of materials may be renewed online at My Record (material listed as course reserves, DVDs, VHS, and non-circulating cannot be renewed online).
Holds may be placed on any circulating materials that are currently checked out to another patron. Hold requests may be made via the request button in the online catalog, by stopping by the circulation desk, or by e-mailing the Circulation Manager. Items labeled as “Reserve” may only be held once in a twenty four hour period.
The Elon Law Library maintains a closed reserve collection. Anyone wishing to view the reserve collection must be accompanied by a member of the library staff. Loan periods for reserve materials vary based on item type and faculty request.
OVERDUE FINES AND LOST MATERIAL
Overdue fines are charged on a daily basis for regular circulating materials and an hourly basis for reserve materials.
• Reserve Materials: $.50 per hour
• Non-reserve Materials: $.25 per day for first 10 days, then $.50 per day thereafter.
• Recalled Materials: $.25 per hour or day depending on whether it is a reserve or non-reserve item.
• Lost Interlibrary Loan Items: $250 minimum, or lending library's bill plus $40, whichever is greater.
If a reserve item is lost or overdue for three or more days, the library reserves the right to bill the patron the replacement cost for the item, plus a $40.00 processing fee. If a non-reserve item is lost or overdue by 45 or more days, the library reserves the right to bill the patron for the cost of replacement plus a $40.00 processing fee.
All library charges must be paid in full by the end of each semester and before graduation. Unpaid fines may result in a patron’s account being frozen until their debt is settled.
