Printing & Copying Costs

You need to purchase credits before you can print or photocopy (there is no charge for scanning)  You can add credits in multiples of 10p using the self-service print credit station in the foyer (Level 1) of the Library (watch a quick video demo on how to do this)  Or, you can buy credits in multiples of £1.50 at the Support Enquiry Zone.  There is a slight delay between adding credit and being able to print - your account may take up to 15 minutes to be credited.
