Library and Campus Vending
x 11" paper = 8 1/2 cents per copy (cash = 15 cents)
The increase totals 1/2 cent per copy for Value Card purchases and 5 cent per copy for cash purchases. The new rates are primarily the result of a new reduction feature that allows users to copy an increased number of pages at once, making more efficient use of their time and money and reducing the amount of paper used.
The following example compares the cost of copying four standard-size pages using the old and new service:
The Library and Campus Vending are introducing the reduction feature as a service enhancement that reduces total cost for the majority of copying jobs. When used in conjunction with the Value Card System, the savings to library users can be significant; e.g., in the above example, nearly 50 percent. Individuals may purchase a copy card or add value to their i-card at these Library locations: Biology, Circulation, Education and Social Sciences, Grainger, Law, Music, Physics (add value only), Undergraduate and Veterinary Medicine (add value only).
Questions concerning the new copy service or Value Card System can be directed to Steve Lawson, manager of Campus Vending, at email@example.com or 333-7106.
