Note: Many of the materials held in the Library are protected by copyright. When making copies, you must observe copyright law as defined by Title 17, U.S. Code. The Library does not supervise the use of photocopiers and scanners on its premises.

There are 5 photocopiers on the second floor. The copiers will accept bills ($1 or $5 only) and coins (no pennies). You can also pay with a Student Access card onto which you have loaded money. Posters near the photocopiers illustrate the process, including two-sided (duplex) copying and adjusting copy size.


Photocopiers #3 and #5 allow scanning to USB drive. Instructions for this process are available at the copiers, or you may download the handout (pdf file).

In the first-floor Academic Computing lab (LR144), a scanner connected to a computer is available for use.
