Introduction to PCAS
Copying and printing across all the Bodleian Libraries – including the Sainsbury Library – operates via the PCAS system, whereby you create a personal PCAS account from which all your costs are deducted. Like any personal financial account, you can top it up at any time for whatever value you wish.
As the account is password protected, any jobs you send to a PCAS machine will not print until you are there to release it, giving you that added level of security – all print jobs are retained in the system for 72 hours before being deleted and any job sent to a PCAS account from any Bodleian Library may be printed at any other Bodleian library.
Printing from Library iMacs
For information on printing from the Apple iMacs in the library, please refer to our iMac printing guide.
