Desktop Services (DS) Account Printer Credit

DS account printer credit can be used to print, scan or photocopy. You can purchase online credit with a bank card in these places:

  • University of Cambridge card holders can purchase credit online here.
  • Other library users can purchase credit online here or via the Moore Library kiosk terminal (located alongside the MFD on the ground floor). 

Alternatively, you can also purchase a line of credit by using cash at the Moore Library Service Desk. 


Coin-Operated Photocopiers

There are two coin-operated photocopiers located on the lower-ground floor.

Insert coins into the unit attached to the left-hand side of each photocopier in order to activate the machine.

Charges are as follows:

  • £0.10 - A4 Black & White
  • £0.20 - A3 Black & White

The copiers accept most British coins (namely £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p) but not notes. Unfortunately, the units are not able to give change, so please make sure you use the correct money.
