The UC Berkeley libraries have a new system for making copies of printed materials, and for printing from the public computers. We no longer have photocopiers ~ we have BookScan Stations. Materials can be printed on paper, or scanned directly to a flash drive (available in the Moffitt Library Copy Center) at much lower costs.
Visitors can request a Cal 1 Guest Card from the Circulation Desk in the Physics-Astronomy Library, the Moffitt Library Copy Center, or other library public service desks.
The new system does not accept coins or bills. Until August 31, 2011, some coin-operated copiers and change machines will still be available in the locations listed below. After that date, only the Moffitt Library Copy Center can accept alternate forms of payment.
As previously announced, Equitrac cards used with the former system will expire August 31, 2011. Until that time, they can still be used at these locations:
Unused balances on Equitrac Cards (except for departmental cards) will not be refunded.
We will have an open house, Tea & Tour, for the new astronomy and physics graduate students on Wednesday, August 17, 2-4pm, in the Library. Find out what we have and where it is, refreshments are provided.
The Library will be close from 1-5pm that day.
The roof directly above the Physics-Astronomy Library is being repaired this week, July 25-29, 2011. We are monitoring the noise and possible fumes each day. Check the blog for any updates.
SciFinder is now web based, there is a one-time registration. Instructions are at http://software.chem.ucla.edu/scifind/SfsUCBweb.html. Once you have registered, you can go directly to http://scifinder.cas.org/. Note that even with registration, off-campus access still requires the library proxy server, unless you are using the SciFinder Mobile platform on your smartphone.
All of the UC Berkeley Libraries will be closed on Monday, July 4th.
