Copying and Printing Prices

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 and microfilm printers take either cash or credit/debit card. Printing from computers in the Library requires cash or card. Most computer files may also be emailed or downloaded without fees. Please note: Some services, including color printing, are not available at all locations. Some USB Flash Drives may not be supported.
