STL Law Library 法律图书馆: Borrow/Renew

Overview

Members of the STL community have full borrowing privileges at University Town Library (UTL) and the STL Law Library.  These privileges are free to STL faculty, staff and currently enrolled students.

Your University Town Campus card serves as your library card.  To borrow items from the UTL and STL Law Library, present the item(s) and your library card at the Circulation Desk.  In order to protect you and our materials, no other form of ID will be accepted.

Want your books for longer? You can renew your materials online or in person.
