Print, Copy & Scan: new services, new procedures

From 9 August 2010, Bodleian Libraries are introducing a new system for photocopying, printing and scanning.   Readers will have access to a range of new services across all libraries: scanning, colour copies, self-service online accounts, discounted double-sided, and print jobs that can be collected from any photocopier in any Bodleian Library. 

To use the new system, you will need to set up an online account, to which you can add credit using a credit or debit card.   When you first come to use the photocopier, your library card will be linked to this account.  Once linked, you will just need to swipe your card to pick up print jobs and access copying and scanning.  You will be able to set up your account from 9th August, and instructions on how to do so will be available then.

What will happen to credit on my existing photocopy card?
Once you have set up an account, library staff can transfer credit from the old system to your new account. Simply set up an account and present your old card to library staff. We will need your PCAS username to complete the transaction.

New photocopying payment system delayed

As you may be aware, a new system for photocopying and printing across the Bodleian Libraries was due to be introduced during the Easter vacation.   Unfortunately the change to the new system has had to be delayed and is now expected to take place over the summer.   We’ll update you further when we know more, but for now be assured that nothing is changing yet with the way you pay for your photocopying and printing in the library.

Printing and photocopying survey

A message from OULS:

As part of a review of the Oxford University Library Service’s printing and copying facilities, we have put together a questionnaire and would be grateful if you could spare some time to fill it in and provide some feedback.

The survey closes midnight Sunday June 21st, after which there will be a prize draw for an MP3 player and USB sticks.

Please find the link to the survey on the OULS webpage, or go directly to it here.
