General Policy

The mission of the UCSB Library’s instruction services is to support the research, teaching, and other information needs of UCSB faculty, students, and staff.

Community Groups

Groups who are not affiliated with the University are welcome to use the library, provided that the activity is in accord with overall UCSB Library policies and with the guidelines set forth below.  Members of the UCSB community always receive priority for the use of the library’s computers, services, and other resources. If your group exceeds 10 people, please contact Rebecca Greer Director of Teaching & Learning. 

Please contact Rebecca Greer to discuss the purpose of your visit. In many cases, local public or school libraries may have more appropriate resources.
