If you register your email address in your library account, all of your library circulation notices will be sent by email. You will also receive a courtesy notice 4 days before most items are due. These notices include instructions for renewing your materials online.
You may return items to any of the overnight book drops located at each entrance of the UCSB Library and the Music Library. During open hours, you may return items directly to the Services Desk or to any of the inside book drops located near the entrances. Receipts for returned items are available upon request.
