  Printing and Copying

Once you have located an item of interest on the computer, you have several choices:

  • Scan the material and save to a USB drive.  The Map Library has a 42" roll-type scanner and a 11 x 17" (A3) flatbed scanner.  Most other scanners are in the Hollander MakeCentral (Copy Center) on 2-west.
  • Photocopy the material -- coin and bill-operated machines are sprinkled around both wings of the main library on nearly every floor.  The main location for making photocopies in the main library is Hollander MakeCentral on 2-west.
