How to pay

Self-service photocopying

These can be paid for using the Bodleian Libraries PCAS account.  PCAS accounts use Bodleian Libraries username and password (which is also used to login to reading room PCs and Bodleian Libraries WiFi).  You can add credit using a credit or debit card at our WebPay portal or by cash using the autoloader located in the Bodleian Old Library. You will need to use this account to do printing, copying and scanning in all the Bodleian Libraries.

Staff photocopying service

It is usually best to pay using your PCAS account. We do accept payment by cheque as an alternative, but because of administrative costs we impose a minimum charge of £10.00. Your cheque should be in pounds sterling. Please pay at the Reserve Desk when ordering your copies.

Postal photocopy orders

The best way to pay for postal photocopy orders that you order away from the library is to use a PCAS account.

Please note - partially unused PCAS credit is not refundable but we can refund complete unused PCAS credit.  If paying by PCAS, we will inform you if you need to add more credit to your account to complete the order.  

Alternatively we can accept payment be credit card or cheque. 

  • Credit Cards: we accept Visa, Mastercard, Delta and UK Maestro. There is a minimum charge of £10.00 for this service. If you fix a maximum sum that you are prepared to pay above the estimated cost of the copying, then we have some leeway if there is a need to use a slightly more expensive process to obtain good prints for you. Please remember that we cannot accept card details sent by email for security reasons; please use the postal photocopies order form.
  • Cheques:we can accept a cheque in pounds sterling drawn on a United Kingdom bank. This must be made payable to the "Bodleian Library". No cheques will be accepted that do not fulfil these requirements exactly. Please contact the Main Enquiry Desk if in doubt. We are unable to accept either UK postal orders or International Money Orders.

 VAT is included in the price of all copies posted to UK or EU customers.
