Copying/Printing at the Libraries
Your UCI PhotoID will serve as your copy card for xeroxing and printing. It requires that money be added to it by inserting it in one of the Regenerator machines found throughout the UCI Libraries. Enter a few dollars at a time and add to it when it is depleted. Costs will be debited at the rate of 10 cents per copy or xerox made; 12 cents per page of printing and more for color printing. It will also be good in all campus IT centers but the costs for different functions may vary.
