PCAS - Print, Copy and Scan

PCAS is the system for printing, copying, and scanning in the Bodleian Libraries. The Radcliffe Science Library has 5 self-service copiers where you can photocopy or scan, and collect print jobs you've sent from a computer. Services include:

How do I pay?

  • You need a PCAS account to do any printing, photocopying or scanning
  • Top up your account from any PC, using a credit/debit card
  • Credit is held in a secure online system 
  • You can view your account balance and past activity.
  • There are no coin- or card-operated copiers in the Bodleian Libraries.
  • Your College or Department will have a different system.

Setting up and using a PCAS account

First set up your PCAS account and add some credit using your credit/debit card.

Then log on to a copier/printer with your PCAS username & password.

Do your photocopying/scanning, or view and print the print jobs you've sent. Payment is deducted from your account with each transaction.

You can link your account to your University card by simply swiping your card at the PCAS copier/printer once you've logged in, to save having to type in your username and password every time.

Further information is available on the Bodleian PCAS page.

Copyright law

Remember, copyright law dictates that you may only copy:

  • Up to 5% or one chapter of a book (whichever is the greater)
  • Up to 5% or one article from a journal issue (whichever is the greater)

What the RSL sells

I want to scan but I don't have a USB stick!

You can email scanned documents to yourself, but inserting a USB stick in the machine is much quicker.
If you want one, ask at the Enquiry Desk.  The charge is £8.00 for 2 gigabytes.
