New system for copying and printing in the libraries

The UC Berkeley libraries have a new system for making copies of printed materials, and for printing from our public computers.  It replaces traditional photocopiers with BookScan stations.  Materials can be printed on paper, or scanned directly to a flash drive (available in the Moffitt Library Copy Center) at a much lower cost.

For payment, the new system requires a Cal 1 Card with funds available in its debit account.  These cards are issued to UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff members.  Departmental cards are also available.

Visitors can request a Cal 1 Guest Card from the Moffitt Library Copy Center or from a public service desk in a library.

The new system does not accept coins or bills.   Only the Moffitt Library Copy Center can accept alternate forms of payment.

As previously announced, Equitrac cards used with the former system expired on August 31, 2011.

Update: Refunds of unused value on expired Equitrac copy cards for individuals (UCB students, staff, faculty and non-UC guests), and those purchased with departmental funds, are available through September 30, 2011.
