When you request items using the library catalog "Request UW Item", "Request Summit Item", or fill out the ILL form, your items will come to the law library circulation desk hold shelf when they arrive.
How long do books take to arrive after being requested? Approximate times:
Hold shelf items expire: Most items generally stay on the hold shelf for two weeks, after which your hold will expire and the item will be released back out into the wild for other borrowers to request.
Email notification: You will receive an email when the item arrives at the desk.
You can designate another law student to pick your hold shelf items up for you.
To do so, email email@example.com with the subject "Proxy Borrower Request". Explain that you'd like to appoint another student as a borrower for you and give us their name and NetID. Be sure to email us from your UW email address.
Questions about proxy borrowing? Contact Head of Circulation Services, Alena Wolotira.
Law library materials that journal staff place on hold and related to journal work can be checked out and delivered to the journal offices upon request. Editors in chief of the journals have been asked to designate specific book delivery areas for their journal's office.*
This applies only to law library items. UW Libraries, Summit, and ILL items must still be picked up at the desk in person (or by proxy, see above).
How to request delivery?:
*NOTE: once library staff let you know that these items are checked out to you and delivered, you, the borrower, are responsible for them. Should the items get lost or damaged while in the journal offices, it is the borrower's responsibility to pay for repair and/or replacement.
