Equitrac Copy Cards extended through August 31

Update: The library has negotiated a contract extension that will extend the use of Equitrac cards through August 31, 2011 (not June 30 as previously announced).

As part of a transition in vendors for the library’s copying and computer printing services, the Equitrac “copy cards” that have been in use for several years will be honored only until August 31, 2011.  Any unused value on the Equitrac cards will be lost after that date.  Refunds of unused value will not be available.

For anyone purchasing or adding value to an Equitrac card between now and August 31, we recommend getting only the value that can be reasonably used during that time.

Another option is to use a Cal 1 Card.   Currently, this can be done on designated copiers and printers on the second floor of Doe Library, the entrance level of Moffitt Library, and the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library.

Starting September 1, only the Cal 1 Card debit account will be used for copying and printing throughout the libraries.  For those not affiliated with UC Berkeley, we are developing a Cal 1 Card Guest Card so they can also use copying and printing services at the libraries.

This change is part of a larger transition in which the UC San Francisco Documents, Media & Mail office, in partnership with the UC Library, is managing the copy centers in the Moffitt Library and the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library, and expanding the services available.   For more information, see:
