Photocopiers and Scanners

All university libraries have multi-functional machines where patrons can print, make photocopies or scan to email or to a flash drive. A guest printing card is required to do any of these functions. Guest printing cards can be purchased from the kiosk located on the fourth floor computer area. There is a one-time cost of $1.00 for the reloadable guest card purchase. The cost for printing or making copies is $0.09 per page for black and white and $0.14 for color. There is no charge to scan, but a balance must be on the print card. Please ask at the service desk if assistance is needed.
