The cards are valid for one year from the date of issue and are not refundable. Each user may order a total of up to 150 fast-track photocopies during each academic year.

Readers who with to use this service must give the completely filled-out card to a member of the Reading Room staff, together with the book (in the case of a book from the stacks, the reader must have already received it for consultation) and the duly filled-out photocopy request form, which is available at the distribution desks in the Printed Books and Periodicals Reading Rooms.
