Printing and Photocopying at the UGA Libraries
Paying for Printing and Photocopying
The printers and copiers in the Libraries no longer accept cash. To print from computers or to make copies, you must use a UGA ID card, which has been activated for Bulldog Bucks, or you must purchase a guest copy card.
Can I print without a UGA ID card?
If you don't have a UGA ID card or you forgot to bring it, you can buy a guest copy card at the libraries. The card costs $1.00; you are charged 60 cents for the card, leaving 40 cents on the card for printing. The card is yours to keep and you can put more money on it at the Bulldog Bucks VTS machines. Copy cards also work on the photocopiers and for printing from microfilm or microfiche in the basement.
Where can I add money to my ID card or buy a copy card?
UGA ID Cards: You can only add money to your UGA ID card online at http://bulldogbucks.uga.edu/. The Bulldog Bucks VTS machines will no longer allow you to add cash to a UGA ID card.
Guest Cards: Visitors can purchase a copy card at the Bulldog Bucks VTS machines located in the Reference Rooms of the Main and Science libraries, and in the 3rd floor vending machine area of the Miller Learning Center. You can also add cash to a guest card using the same machine. Please note: These machines accept only paper money. You cannot add money to your card using change anywhere in the libraries. Access Services (the circulation desk) can convert your change to paper money.
How do I print from the computers in the library?
Each computer in the library is connected to a network of printers. When you click on the 'print' button, you will be prompted to send your job to a print queue. This queue is then accessible from networked printers in the same room. The printers do not accept cash; each print station has a black 'swipe box' that accepts a UGA ID card or a copy card. Printing costs 6 cents a page.
Can I print in color?
You can print in color in the Main and Science Libraries, and on the 3rd floor of the Miller Learning Center. The cost is 50 cents per page.
Where can I make photocopies and how much do they cost?
There are photocopiers on almost every floor of the UGA libraries. Copies are 9 cents. All machines accept ID cards or copy cards; no machines accept cash.
Can I make color photocopies in the library?
The libraries do not have color photocopiers, but there is a color copier at the Tate Center.
Can I make copies from microfilm and microfiche?
The libraries have several microfilm and microfiche copiers. The cost of photocopying from microfilm/microfiche is 10 cents per page with a UGA ID card or copy card. The microfilm/microfiche copiers do not accept cash.
What do I do if the copier jams or I have problems printing from a computer?
Go to the Reference Desk for assistance with both printing and photocopying.
