Faculty & Staff Circulation Policies

Law Faculty Staff Card

Longer loan periods for faculty and staff are generated with a separate law faculty staff card. In order to establish this secondary account, you must have a UW ID. After your account is created, we will store a copy of your faculty staff card at the Circulation Desk, so you do not have to bring your card with you. Simply tell the student at the Circulation Desk you are faculty/staff and they will find your card.

For a printer-friendly handout with this information, see Faculty Circulation Services.

Loan Periods

Stack items -- one semester

Reference items -- 28 days

Periodicals -- 28 days

Reserve items -- please ask for extended loans

Recalls

Items are subject to recall after 28 days.

Renewals

Stack items can be renewed twice.

Borrowing from other UW libraries

Perhaps you are looking for something outside the area of law? You can search all UW-Madison campus libraries and UW System libraries using the Library Catalog.  After selecting an item, click on the link labeled "Place Requests" at the top of the page. Then use your UW ID to place the request and select the Law Library as your pickup location. These are semester loans.

This information is on a printer-friendly handout in Power Point format. Faculty Circulation Services.

Offsite storage

Low-use items are sent to a storage facility on campus. Holdings are listed in the Library Catalog with the location "UW Madison Shelving Facility." After selecting an item, click on the link labeled "Place Requests" at the top of the page. Then use your UW ID to place the request and select the Law Library as your pickup location.  These loans very according to the materials requested.

Proxies/Runners

Your assistant may be authorized to charge items for you at all campus libraries by making them proxies to your account. When they visit a library to pick up an item for you, they tell the Circulation Desk employee they want to do a proxy charge. While still using their UW ID, the item is charged to your account and overdue notices are sent to you. To request someone be able to charge as your proxy, please complete the Library Runner Authorization Request form.

Track all your library requests, check due dates and renew library materials by using the My Accounts tab in the top right-hand corner of the Library Catalog page.
