PCAS upgrade: Bodleian Library implementation

16 August 2016

From 6 September, PCAS accounts are changing, and the way in which readers sign in to their accounts will switch. The Libraries are also replacing existing copiers with machines that offer a greener and more reliable service. For full information, please visit our PCAS Development pages.

The Bodleian Library and Radcliffe Camera will begin the transition earlier than other libraries, and the Upper Radcliffe Camera Reading Room will close on two mornings to accommodate the work. Key dates for these buildings are as follows:

Thursday 25 August

Printing, copying and scanning will be suspended from 5pm when the devices will be taken out of service. The cash loader will be taken out of service at this time too. These services will be unavailable until the upgraded PCAS system is re-launched on Tuesday 6 September. Please discuss alternative options with staff during this period.

Friday 26 August

Removal of current PCAS machines:

  • The Upper Camera reading room will open at 1pm
  • Some general disruption across the site

Wednesday 31 August

Installation of new PCAS machines

  • The Upper Camera reading room will open at 1pm
  • Some general disruption across the site

PCAS will be re-launched. Users will access the new system using their Bodleian Libraries account details. Please see our PCAS Development page for information on changes to PCAS accounts and how credit can be transferred from accounts used on the old system.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by this work.
