Students who would like to borrow books on circulation should present their duly countersigned U.P. ID. The U.P. ID is the permit to borrow library materials for off-premise reading. U.P. Law students who wish to borrow from other library units must request for a Borrowers Card (BC).
Foreign and Filipiniana books may be borrowed for two (2) weeks and can be renewed for another two (2) weeks depending upon the need. A student may only charge out a maximum of ten (10) books at a time. Any student who may wish to borrow any book may withdraw the same from the open shelves and fill out the book card with his printed name, student number, and the college where he is enrolled together with his U.P. ID. The student should return books at the desk.
A fine of P 2.00 per day is imposed for any overdue book or recall exclusive of Sundays or Holidays. Borrowers with overdue books may not be allowed to borrow any library material.
Only registered students with duly countersigned ID card may borrow from the Reserve Counter. A student who fails to return a book on time is considered delinquent and will be subject to imposable fines and suspension of library privileges for two (2) weeks.
Reserve books should be properly charged in the Reserve Counter on a two-hour loan basis and shall not be taken out of the law library.
Only students not included in the delinquent list may be allowed to reserve book for overnight loan. The student should check first with the personnel on duty if the desired book is available for overnight loan. If the book is available, the student should fill out a reservation slip, placing the author, title and volume of the book, his name, in print and signature, his student number, year, section and date. When duly approved, the reservation slip shall be presented to the Desk Assistant at the Reserve Counter with the students ID card during the overnight lending hours (Mondays to Fridays, 3:00 P.M. for day students and 6:00 P.M. for evening students and Saturdays, 2:00 for all students.) The book may also be charged-out earlier if the same is not being used by other student. A borrower who fails to get his reserved books thirty (30) minutes before closing time is considered to have waived his privilege.
A law student may be allowed to charge out two (2) reserve books not embracing the same subject matter. The same book/books may not be reserved by the same student successively unless there are sufficient copies available to other.
