Borrowing Privileges

Current students, faculty, adjunct faculty, and staff of Jacksonville University have borrowing privileges at the College of Law Library. A valid Dolphin 1Card is required to check out materials. Your Dolphin Card is your Library card. To obtain a new Dolphin Card, contact Campus Security.

Due Dates and Overdue Notices

All patrons are responsible for returning library materials on or before the date the material is due. Due dates can be found online by logging into your library account.

The Library sends notices via e-mail to patrons alerting them of overdue materials. Notices are sent to institution e-mail addresses only ( email). The Library is not obligated to send overdue notices, but does so as a courtesy. A courtesy notice will be sent before an item is due. Two overdue notices will be sent, and if necessary, a final notice stating the charges incurred for the item(s). Failure to receive a library notice does not remove the borrower’s obligation to return the materials by the due date.

Fines and Fees

If an item is overdue for 45 or more days, the item will be considered lost and replacement fees will be charged. If you receive an overdue notice or bill for an item that has been returned, or you believe has been returned, contact the Library.

All fines will be charged to your student account and can be paid online through My JU. You may also pay library charges at the Cashier’s Office (located in the Howard building). The Library does not accept payments of any kind.

Returning Material

During library hours, all materials should be returned to the law Librarian.
