Printing, Copying & Scanning: Information on how to use PCAS
ARACU: Accessible Resources Acquisition and Creation Unit
All Bodleian Libraries have self-photocopying and scanning facilities. Payment is made through online accounts topped up by credit/debit cards - PCAS (Printing, Copying and Scanning).
Personal Scanning Equipment
Library visitors may use personal scanners and digital cameras to make copies from library material. All equipment, with the exception of flat bed scanners, may be used, including smartphones. The use of flash photography is forbidden at all times and please note that different regulations may apply to Special Collections material.
Some libraries have designated areas where you may use your personal scanning equipment. Please ask a member of staff for details when using such equipment.
The Bodleian Libraries can provide alternative formats to printed material on request, ranging from DAISY audio to electronic files and Braille, through ARACU, its centre for alternative formats serving disabled students at the University of Oxford.
We can provide material in DAISY audio (human voice with structure), electronic text (both fully marked Word documents and PDF images), Braille and tactile diagrams.
ARACU charges a fee for work undertaken, but this is on a minimal cost recovery basis as we are subsidized by the Bodleian Libraries. To be able to use the service, you must register with the Disability Advisory Service and be referred to ARACU.
