Managing your PCAS account

PCAS is the way Bodleian Libraries offer readers a system to print, photocopy or scan using a Bodleian Library printer/copier.

The Bodleian Libraries Username & Password = PCAS Username & Password

All Oxford University and Bodleian Library card holders have a Bodleian Libraries username and password.

The username is the number just above the barcode on their University/Bodleian Library card.

The password associated is intially set to a default value (library staff can tell you what it is) - everyone is strongly recommended to change this to a secure password as soon as possible via the online facility below.

The Bodleian Libraries PCAS authentication system changed on 6 Sept 2016. If you had still had credit on a PCAS account which you were using before this date, then you need to use this portal to transfer the remaining credit to your new PCAS account.
