Leaving Oxford? Do not forget to use up your PCAS credit

PCAS is the system for photocopying, printing and scanning across the Bodleian Libraries.

Your PCAS account will end when your University card expires and remaining credit is non-refundable.

We can transfer credit to another PCAS account if requested.

It will also be possible to transfer credit to a different card, e.g. alumnus status.

For credit transfer queries please email PCAS Support.

Whilst your University card is valid you can also use your PCAS credit to pay for Scan & Deliver and Bodleian Library Postal Photocopying.

Finishing your degree this summer? Things to remember before you go

Here are a number of library related things to keep in mind as you prepare to finish your degree and leave Oxford.

Return all library books

If you have any books borrowed from university libraries please return them to the owning library before you leave. This will save on postage or return trips to Oxford (and fines!) later.

Book Donations

If you’ve got any of your own books you don’t need any longer, the library would be happy to receive donations of social sciences textbooks. A box is available at our Issue Desk for you to place them in.

Pay for outstanding fines and lost books

You can pay for all fines owed to any of the Bodleian Libraries in any Bodleian lending library. If you owe money for lost books you will need to visit the library that owns the book you have lost.

Alternatively you can pay for your fines and SSL books you may have lost via the online store. You will need to know the exact amount owed in each case, and you can find this out by signing in to SOLO and looking at “My Account”. If you are no longer able to sign in to SOLO, or have any questions please contact the library.

Use up your PCAS credit

 

Any unused credit on your PCAS account cannot be refunded and so we urge you to use it before you leave Oxford. On request, credit can be transferred to another PCAS account. Please email PCAS Support for assistance.

 

Your PCAS account will end when your University card expires.  It will be possible to transfer credit to a different card, e.g. alumnus status, and all enquiries should be sent to PCAS Support.

 Whilst your University card is valid you can also use your PCAS credit to pay for Scan & Deliver, Bodleian Library Postal Photocopying and Inter-Library Loan requests.

 

Alumni privileges

Reader’s card

As a graduate of the University of Oxford you are entitled to apply for a Reader’s Card (this is different to your Alumni card). This card will grant you reference access to the Bodleian Libraries. Details on how to apply are on the Getting a reader’s card page.

Alumni access to resources

Alumni access to selected resources is available. More information can be found on the Bodleian Alumni access to resources page. Go to the Oxford University Alumni webpage to register for an Oxford Alumni Card.

RefWorks Reference Manager

If you have registered for an individual RefWorks account you will have lifetime access to that account (for as long as we continue to subscribe). More information is available on the Bodleian Libraries’ RefWorks page.

Best of luck!

Whatever you are going on to do when you finish your studies at the University of Oxford, we wish you the best of luck.
