Update on Public Copying and Printing
From Library Monday Memo 8/25/08
All University Libraries public copying and printing equipment have been upgraded to the new CBORD debiting system. The Health Science Library will be upgrading soon. We continue to experience some transition issues which we hope the U Card office will be able to help us resolve soon. Thanks for your patience as the Libraries make this transition and for your dedication to helping the users get what they need while we are changing system platforms.
The Libraries are no longer selling Library Copy Cards. Faculty and staff that need to purchase a copy card with an EFS budget string should request a card through their departmental accounting office. The copy service has purchased a limited number of $3 courtesy cards and distributed them to public service desks to help users who are struggling in this transition.
Patrons should be directed to the new Value Port to add money to their UCard account or to purchase a new Gopher Gold card for $1 and then add value to that. Value Ports are located in Wilson, Walter, Magrath, Law, and HSL. They are also located in the University dormitories.
The UCard office anticipates that the web interface for adding value with a credit or debit card will be available to the public October 1st. There will be a $2 fee for this service. If University faculty, staff, or students have value stored on their UCard that was deposited via the cash to card machines prior to August 15, 2008, that value must be converted to the new system at the UCard office. Old Library Copy Cards (non-CUFS purchased with cash or a check) or Gopher Gold cards purchased in the cash to cards machines will no longer work in the equipment and must be converted at the UCard Office in Coffman to the new system.
Copy Cards with CUFS printed on them should be returned to their departmental accounting office for a refund. Exception: Library units that have old CUFS copy cards should return them to Amy Boemer, 125 Magrath, with their name and unit. Return any old library courtesy cards with value on them to Amy Boemer, 125 Magrath. The library will get credit for these cards which will then convert to new value.
