How can I pay for my copies?


If you have a FLEX Account connected to your DukeCard , you can load money onto your account either online or at Value Transfer Station (VTS) kiosks in most libraries on campus.

Please note that VTS kiosks accept $5, $10 or $20 bills. Once you have money loaded onto your DukeCard , you can use your card at most public-access copiers on campus.

White Library Copy Card

You can purchase and load money onto a white library copy card from Value Transfer Station (VTS) kiosks in most libraries on campus.

You can use white library copy cards at all campus libraries except the Medical Center Library Archives.

Medical Center Library Copy Card

Some Medical Center Library copiers accept copy cards, but you must purchase a specific copy card from the Medical Center Library.

Please note that if you have purchased a white library copy card from Perkins or other campus libraries, you will not be able to use it on Medical Center Library copiers.


A limited number of copiers on campus accept cash, mostly quarters.

Departmental Copy Card

You can use a departmental copy card only on a departmental copier.

How much will I pay?

  • $.07 for each copy (DukeCard or library copy card)
  • $.10 for each copy (cash)

What if my copier is misbehaving?

  • Write down the unit number, located on the front of the copier.
  • Report information to the staff at the circulation desk of your library.
