Photocopying using Canon photocopiers - PAS accounts for all users
- Colour Printing is currently available in almost all branch libraries. Colour photo copying can be carried out 24-7 in the Computer Centre Terminal Room and during opening hours in the Arts (ASSL), Chemistry, Medical, Wills Memorial (Law) and Vet Science (Langford) libraries. A number of departments, including Arts & Biological Sciences also have PAS colour copiers available for student use.
- The A3/A4 copiers can produce full colour or black and white copies and output is charged to your PAS account. **
- Photocopiers in all of our branch libraries are connected to our Printer Accounting Server (PAS) which takes credits from a printer account associated with your UOB domain account and/or your new U-Card (UCards will be in use from Sept 2010). The exception is the Social Medicine Library. If you have printer credit on your account, you can use all our Canon photocopiers as well as print to them along with other PAS printers that are connected to public PCs or shared via the UOB Wireless network.
- Details of how to add printer credit to your account, and check how much you have left, are given on the Printing using the Printer Accounting Server (PAS) page (UoB access only).
- To use a Canon photocopier, once you have printer credit, you will need to log in, using the touch-screen on the photocopier, by entering your UOB username and password, or by swiping your U-Card onto the reader. You will then be able to make your copies by using the photocopier controls. One A4 sheet will cost 5p. Remember to Logout by pressing the ID button to prevent other people making copies at your expense.
- If you find that your password cannot be entered using the touch-screen you could either use one of the card operated photocopiers instead, or you could change your UOB password.

General notes about photocopying
- Instructions on how to use photocopiers are posted by the machines. There is usually a choice of paper sizes (A3 is charged at twice the rate of A4), as well as enlarging and reducing facilities. Many will copy onto acetates or overhead projector (OHP) sheets, but you must check that you have the correct type of sheet before copying.
- Users with special difficulties accessing library resources may contact the AddLibS service to use their AddLibS photocopy & fax service.
- You must comply with the copyright law which is explained on notices by the machines and on the Library website.
- If you have a problem with a photocopier or your photocopy card, or the paper runs out, please ask for assistance - do not attempt to do anything to sort it out yourself.
