Services and facilities at the History of Medicine Library



Printing and copying

The photocopier near the library in the basement is administered by the CHSMT and does not run on the Bodleian Libraries Print, Copy and Scan (PCAS) system. You will need to see the Centre Secretary Belinda Clark for a code and pay for any copies in cash. The current price of an A4 black & white copy is 5p.

There are no printing facilities at the library, but you can use the PCAS Remote Print service to send print jobs to another Bodleian library for pick-up. You will need to collect your printing within 72 hours.

The Bodleian Libraries offer several Wi-Fi networks, including ‘Bodleian-Libraries’ for University and Bodleian Reader card holders, and ‘eduroam’ for members of educational institutions. Find out more about how to connect.
