Copy Card Tips

Posted by UCSB Library on March 2, 2010

Ever find yourself  wanting to print out a paper but you only have coins?  Our copy card machines only take $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills BUT you’re not out of luck.  Here’s a tip that’s proved helpful for a lot of folks.

  1. Buy a blank copy card for $1  (Bills only.  There is a bill changer next to each copy card machine)
  2. Add value to the card.  You can do this by using the same machine (again, bills only) or by inserting your copy card into any photocopy machine.  The copy machines will accept coins.
  3. Consider writing your name or phone number on the card.  You’d be surprised at how many forgotten cards turn up in our Lost & Found!
