PCAS Upgrade Complete

The upgrade of the PCAS servers and software has now taken place.

All services should be working as normal. However, one issue that should be noted is that the RemotePrint website is currently not accessible outside the Oxford network; this issue is currently being worked on.

If you encounter any issues with using PCAS please do not hesitate to seek assistance from a member of library staff or alternatively email pcas@bodleian.ox.ac.uk.

One thing you will notice since the upgrade is that photocopiers have a new style display panel which is much more user friendly:

Log in Screen

The buttons are are much larger which will make manual login easier and both your username and password can be input on the same screen. Do remember though that it is possible to save yourself the time of logging in manually by linking your University/Library card to your PCAS account (to do this swipe your card in the reader attached to the photocopier and enter your PCAS username and password) From then you can simply swipe your card in the reader and you will be logged into the machine.


A second change is that printing will no longer be available from our SunRay terminals (the 2 machines in the library entrance area and the 4 stand up terminals next to our periodicals section) For readers who have no alternative but to print via this method (e.g. you do not have a University/Library card) you can instead print PDFs directly from a USB at the photocopiers or ask a staff member at the issue desk for assistance.
