Jcard problem update
JHU is currently experiencing a problem with Jcards randomly expiring. This is a university wide problem, although at SAIS it appears that anyone with a Jcard issued since August is more likely to be affected. The JHU Office of ID Card Services is working to resolve the problem although at this time it is unclear when it will be corrected. The expiration problem appears to be limited to printing, photocopying or adding money to Jcards. Library borrowing privileges are not affected. If you receive a message that your Jcard has expired or your transaction has failed when releasing a print/copy job or adding money, you need to have your Jcard reactivated by the Business Office, Nitze 311A. The Business Office is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. If the Business Office is closed, you may want to:
- Save documents to your laptop or a USB flash drive
Please note there have been cases where Jcards have needed to be reactivated more than once.Our apologies for this inconvenience.
- If using a public terminal in the Library, save to the desktop and email the files to yourself for printing after reactivation of your Jcard

Have you tried the Scan To Email feature?
Three of the 6th floor photocopy machines include a scanning feature, allowing you to scan and email any document at ** no charge **. To enable the scanning, you must swipe your J-Card, but it will not be debited. Just have at least 8 cents on the card so the copier will think you are authorized to copy (again, scan to email is free).
Instructions are posted on each machine that offers scanning (machines 1-3). Ask at the Desk if you need help!
