All photocopying in the Libraries is undertaken within the terms of various Acts and agreements. The terms and conditions are posted by the photocopiers. The machines are maintained under contract: if you have a problem, suspect a fault with a photocopier or it runs out of paper, inform a member of Library staff at once but do not try to rectify the fault yourself. Public copying and printing at the University is the responsibility of Computing Services.
All photocopiers in the Libraries use the rechargeable swipe cards which are issued to you at the start of your course.
- A4 black and white single-sided copies cost 5p each; double-sided copies cost 8p each
- A3 black and white single-sided copies cost 10p each; double-sided copies cost 12p each
- A4 colour single-sided copies cost 21p each; double-sided copies cost 32p each
- A3 colour single-sided copies cost 42p each; double-sided copies cost 64p each
Cards can be recharged with £2, £5 or £10, using your credit or debit card on The Hub (follow links to Printing Credits) or with cash using the machine in the Short Stay Room (LY.119) at Newton Park Library.
Acetates (or OHTs)
If you want to copy onto an acetate (or overhead transparency, OHT), you must ensure that you have the correct type before using the copier or you will cause serious damage to the machine. Always ask a member of Library staff for assistance before using acetates.
