UD i-card & Flex
UD students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use their University of Delaware ID cards (UD i-cards) instead of purchasing Library Copy Cards.
UD Student Printing Allowance
UD's PrintLess program assigns many student UD i-cards a $5.00 computer printing allowance twice a year. This allowance may be used for printing in UD computer sites but is not valid for photocopying. After the allowance is expended, printing may be purchased using Flex dollars encoded on the card. Print jobs are released to the printers at the VendPrint Release Stations. Payment is taken from either the print allowance or Flex.
Printers and photocopiers are located throughout the Library (see map for locations). All accept payment using UD i-cards or Library Copy Cards.
Library Copy Cards
Users without UD i-cards may purchase and use Library Copy Cards for photocopying and printing. Library Copy Cards are sold at the Student Multimedia Design Center service desk on the Lower Level and at the Copy Card dispenser near the Circulation desk on the first floor. Each Copy Card costs $1.00 and any value may be added at the Student Multimedia Design Center service desk.
Copy Card dispensers require $5.00 to purchase a card and payment must be made with a $5.00 bill or five $1.00 bills. Each Copy Card purchased costs $1.00; when purchased from a dispenser, $4.00 is credited as Flex dollars on the card. Additional value may be added in whole dollar amounts using $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, or $20.00 bills. Receipts are available for any card purchase or deposit of money.
Adding Value to Flex
Value can be added to either the UD i-cards or Copy Cards using cash at Value Transfer Stations located throughout campus and at the Student Multimedia Design Center desk. Cash, checks and coins may be used to add value at the Student Multimedia Design Center service desk.
University of Delaware students, faculty and staff may use their UD i-cards instead of Library Copy Cards.
Library Copy Card
