To ensure that the University Libraries has an accurate list of fees generated and that fees are consistent across the Libraries’ system.
Recommendations for changes to the Libraries’ fee structure are made by a Fee Committee, appointed by the Libraries’ administration. The Fee Committee reviews and modifies the Libraries’ fee structure, submits recommendations to the Dean and Dean’s Library Council for review and approval, prepares a document to be submitted to the Corporate Controller's office for approval, and publicizes the new fee structure appropriately.
To determine fees, the Committee studies the cost of doing business and market forces; it also benchmarks against comparable research libraries. The Committee takes into account the electronic information environment, which impacts the Libraries’ operations and services. All fees are charged to all patrons.
The Fee Committee meets to review all fees and make recommendations for adjustments annually.
Other Policies in this manual should also be referenced, especially the following:
