Circulation Policies

A significant portion of Law Library materials are not allowed to leave the building, but others may be checked out by attorneys admitted to the State Bar of South Dakota for a four-week loan period with one renewal. Loan privileges are also extended to attorneys in northwest Iowa, southwest Minnesota and northeast Nebraska at the discretion of the Law Library director.

Items may be checked out in person or requested via telephone or email. Materials will routinely be mailed via commercial carrier but the cost of postage is your responsibility. You must include your name, state bar and bar number, current mailing address, current phone number and commercial carrier account information. It is your responsibility to return materials to the Law Library by the due date. Failure to return materials after written request is theft under South Dakota codified laws.

We reserve the right to deny a request for renewal when materials are needed by other patrons and to revoke circulation privileges to any person who abuses the privilege or refuses to follow library policies.
