University Library Billing

The University Library seeks to provide a collection that generations of UCSC community members will be able to access, use, and enjoy. Therefore we must ensure that the items held in the collection remain both available and in good condition. As a result, fees are assessed in cases when items are returned late, damaged, or lost.
