Copying and Printing Prices
Self-Service Copying and Printing
All self-service copies require Library staff approval. Many Library materials may be copied only by Library staff. Some materials may not be copied. This helps to maintain the condition of research materials, which are often both rare and fragile.
Self-service photocopy machines take either a copy card or coins. Microfilm printers take either a copy card or coins. Printing from computers in the Library requires a copy card. Most computer files may also be emailed or downloaded without fees, and flash drives are available for sale through Copy Services.
Copy cards cost 30¢ and can be purchased in all Library locations; value can be added to copy cards at locations throughout the Library.
Some services are not available at all locations.
