Print, Copy and Scan availability during PCAS Upgrade downtime (4pm 26th Aug to 9am 6th Sept)


As you will know from previous communications, PCAS (the Bodleian Libraries Print, Copy and Scan service) is being upgraded this summer. Further details about the upgrade and how it affects you can be found here.

The upgrade period will run from:

4pm Friday 26th August to 9am Tuesday 6th September.

During the transition period while the upgrade takes place the usual PCAS account system will be unavailable. This will mean that you can’t:

  • Send print jobs from library PCs or your laptop.
  • Access you PCAS account for adding credit etc

The Library photocopiers will be placed in an interim mode which will allow:

  • Photocopying
  • Scan to Email
  • Scan to USB

Note that there will be no charge for these services during this period.

Usual charges will apply when the new system goes live on the 6th September.

Staff mediated B/W printing will be available via our Library Issue Desk. Charges will apply (6p per single sided page and 9p for double sided). Payment is to be made in cash (as there will be no access to PCAS accounts during the downtime.)
