Student Borrowing

Legal Information Center Borrowing Fall 2020

Users must check out materials at the Circulation Desk. Users should present their Gator 1 card when checking out materials. Students may check out up to 250 items at one time.

Circulating books may be checked out for eight weeks. Books may be renewed online or at the Circulation Desk unless another patron has requested the item. 

Books must be returned to the book return located east of the entrance to the LIC. Books may not be returned to circulation at this time.

Books shelved in Reserve are unavailable. Many of these materials are available digitally or a digital copy has been provided to your professor. If you have questions about access to a book on reserves, please contact us.

Other Circulating Items Fall 2020

For the safety of our patrons and staff, the LIC will not circulate technology including Mac and PC laptop chargers, Android and iPhone chargers, external USB DVD/CD drives, or noise-canceling headphones at this time.

If you wish to use the whiteboards available in the LIC, please bring your own dry erase markers during Fall 2020.

Smathers Libraries Borrowing Fall 2020

Students can borrow materials from any of the libraries on campus. Materials must be obtained from the library where the material is held, however, materials can be returned to the Legal Information Center book return.

Smathers Libraries opened to UF Affiliates on August 28, 2020. For more information about obtaining books from other libraries on campus during the fall semester, please visit https://cms.uflib.ufl.edu/ or ask circulation or reference staff for details.

Borrowing from Other Florida Libraries

UBorrow is a program that allows you to quickly and easily place requests for materials held by other Florida university libraries. Due to cost savings and speed of delivery, UBorrow is preferable to interlibrary loan if the material is available. If you have searched the University of Florida Libraries catalog and determined that the item you seek is not held by any of the UF libraries, click the "Search Other FL Academic Libraries" in the box on the left hand side of the screen. You will be taken to the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC) search. Alternatively, you can search the FALSC shared catalog at https://union.discover.flvc.org/ux.jsp. If the item is available, a navy blue UBorrow button will appear. Click that button to start the process. For pickup location, select "Legal Information Center." Click the "Place Request" button. Your request will be automatically processed and you will receive an email when the materials are ready to be picked up at the Legal Information Center Circulation Desk. 

If the item you are interested in is not available through UBorrow, we may be able to obtain it through interlibrary loan. (ILL) Please view the information on the ILL process below.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Fall 2020

If materials are not available through Smathers Libraries, you may place a request for the Legal Information Center to attempt to borrow the material from another library in the United States through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). You can also request articles, chapters, or pages from books through ILL.

To place an Interlibrary Loan request, please submit an Interlibrary Loan request at https://uflib.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/fub/logon.html.

Note that books may take anywhere from one to two weeks to arrive through ILL. Requests for scans from books or articles usually arrive electronically within one week.

We will attempt to obtain any item requested through ILL. However, due to current circumstances, ILL may take longer to facilitate or items may be unavailable as many libraries are not participating in ILL at this time.
