Library Card Information

To assist patrons in utilizing the circulation system, the library is offering attorneys, paralegals and law librarians the opportunity to obtain library cards. Library cards are available for a $20.00 annual fee. They are issued in the names of individuals and not firm names. The card holder may authorize others to use the card by completing the information on the reverse of the application. It will be necessary for anyone wishing to check materials out of the library to have a current library card and to present it at check out. A patron must have a library card to check out items on reserve, such as unbound periodicals, for a three-hour period. Not all library items are available for check out by library card holders or any other patrons. These items that may not leave the library are primarily reserve materials, materials that require loose-leafing, and serials.

To obtain a library card, simply request and complete the application and submit it along with $20.00 to Tiwana Cantrell, Circulation Assistant, Mississippi College School of Law Library, 151 East Griffith Street, Jackson, Mississippi, 39201. You may request an application over the telephone, by mail or in person. One month prior to the expiration of your card, you will receive a renewal notice.

Being a law library card holder will also entitle you to make use of our interlibrary loan service. Details of that service may be obtained in the library.
