Using library copiers

When using library copiers, the default settings are black-and-white and single-sided.

  1. Use your PCAS account details to log into the photocopier. Select Device Functions and then Copy.
  2. Lift the lid of the photocopier and place the item you wish to copy face-down on the glass, in the top left-hand corner. If you wish to copy via the document feeder, place your document face up.
  3. To change the number of copies, select the number from the keypad to the right of the display screen. If you wish to change these, see additional information further on in this guide.
  4. To start copying, press the large green button to the right of the display screen. Repeat until your copying is complete.
  5. Collect your copying from the gap underneath the display screen. Log out of the photocopier.
  6. To copy in colour, select More under Output Colour on the Copy screen. Select Colour and press OK.

Copyright restrictions apply to copying and scanning of library material.

Copy double-sided

Select Two-Sided Copying on the Copy screen.

If you are copying via the glass pane, select 1 → 2 Sided to copy double-sided.

If you are copying via the document feeder:

  • Choose 1 → 2 sided to copy a single-sided document and produce a double-sided copy.
  • Choose 2 → 2 sided to copy a double-sided document and produce a double-sided copy.
  • Choose 2 → 1 sided to copy a double-sided document and produce a single-sided copy.

Reduce or enlarge your copy

  1. To reduce or enlarge your copy, select Copy Ratio from the Copy screen.
  2. Choose one of the pre-settings (e.g. 70%, or A3 to A4). To see additional options, press Others. Alternatively, you can manually adjust the percentage size.

Copy other sizes

If you are copying a book that is not a standard A4 and A3 size, you will first need to set the area to be copied and then select the size of paper. This will ensure that text is not cut off from your finished copy.

  1. Select the Copy Ratio option and choose one of the preset sized. For books, JIS B5 is a convenient size.
  2. If the book does not fit any of the preset sizes, select Custom Scan Area and input the dimensions manually.

Select paper size

The photocopier should automatically select the correct paper size, according to the size of the item you are copying. However, you can select it yourself to make sure it is on the correct-sized paper.

  1. From under Paper Supply on the Copy display screen, select the size of paper (and orientation) required.
  2. To view additional options, select More.
  3. If you have selected a paper size via More, select OK.
