Printing and Copying


Networked printers are available on all levels of the library. Students are given a $40 printing allowance per semester (400 pages at 10 cents per print). Printing over the $40 allowance is charged to your student account.

Scanning and Copying

There are three networked Multi-function Devices (for photocopying, printing and scanning) in the library. They are located on the lower level near the microform room, the second floor near the reference stacks, and the third floor near the elevator. You can use the MFD as a networked printer, charge copies to your student account, or scan documents to a flash drive. The MFDs on the lower level and the second floor also accept coins and $1 or $5 bills.
