How to Operate the Card Readers

To make copies that charge back to a budget, follow the instructions for your reader keeping the following in mind:

  • If using a dept copy card, use the 1234 override code
  • If using your ID card, you must have a copying privilege assigned before you can proceed
  • ID cards can have up to 2 copying privileges that charge to different budgets- be sure you are using the correct override code for each one! 
    How do I know which code to use?
