Equitrac refunds extended through September 30

Update:  The library has arranged for refunds of unused value on expired Equitrac copy cards (both individual and departmental) to be available through September 30, 2011.

To request a refund on a card that was purchased with an individual’s own funds, bring the card to the Library Business Services office, 110 Doe Library (open Monday-Friday 9am-noon and 1-5pm).  You can also make an appointment by sending email to printcopy[at]lists.berkeley.edu.

For “departmental cards” purchased with University funds, there is a different procedure.
