Photocopies / Scan to paper



The library has two types of scanners:

1. Book ScanCenter in the Art Library, 2nd floor of Olin

This scanner is a simple touch-screen device that allows you to scan to:

  • USB flash drive
  • Dropbox
  • your smartphone or tablet (you will need a QR barcode scanner app installed to download the file)
  • email (you can only send to addresses, limit of 25 MB file)

You can scan into a variety of filetypes -- PDF, Word, TIFF, JPG, PNG.

2. The public Ricoh printers (we have 6 of these scattered throughout the library)

The Public printers can also be used as scanners and photocopiers. These devices can scan to email only.  You can only send to addresses, limit of 25 MB file.

Photocopies/Scan to paper

To make a photocopy (in other words, scan to paper) you can use any of the library or lab public printers.  You are charged the same price per page as for printing. 


Please be aware of U.S. copyright restrictions governing how much of a work can be copied or scanned.
