The University Library seeks to provide a collection that generations of UCSC community members will be able to access, use, and enjoy.

The billing cycle for Faculty is the same as above, with the following exceptions:
The Library feels this policy meets the dual goals of maintaining the collection and recognizing the need for faculty to conduct their research.
This billing policy applies to the following borrowers:
Regular items not recalled
Anyone, regardless of status, can have a book recalled. Manage your account on-line or call the Library to verify the status of items on your account: (McHenry) 831-459-5185 , (S&E) 831-459-5300.
Journal, Reference, and Library Use Only
Reserves and Protect Collection
Fines accrue even while the library is closed.
There are no exceptions: Reserve items are unique and failure to return them infringes on the right of access to other library patrons. These fees are non-negotiable.
