Using Images of Public UCSB Events

For further details on the use of recording at public UCSB events, please see Guidelines for the Use of Individuals' Images and Creative Work.
Other Campus Image Resources
UCSB Photo Services has an archive of campus photos available for the Web for a fee. If you don't find what you are looking for in their archive, you may hire their photographers to shoot on location or in their studio.
