Print, Copy, Fax and Scan in the Library

For your convenience, the library provides public access to printers, copiers and stand-alone scanners on all floors of the Dick Smith Library and at the Texan Hall Library. Color printing is available on the Main and Upper Floors of the Dick Smith Library, and color copying and faxing are available at the Circulation Desk.

Printing

Students are given $5 of printing money each semester for use with the Library's printers, as well as other public access printers on campus. Printing money cannot be used with the public access copiers. After those funds are exhausted, students can print using Texan Bucks. Texan Bucks can be managed through the Texan Card Office website, the Texan Card kiosk in the Main Floor print/copy room or at the Texan Card office in the Tarleton Center. Guests may also purchase a printing card from the Texan card kiosk.

Prices for printing:

  • Black & White Single-sided: $0.05
  • Black & White Double-sided: $0.08
  • Color Single-sided: $0.15
  • Color Double-sided: $0.18

Poster and 3-D printing are available in The Maker Spot.

Laminating is available at the Circulation desk for $1/foot.

Scanning

Standalone scanners are available on all floors of the Dick Smith Library and at the Texan Hall Library. Scanners are free for all library users, and scanned files can be saved to a flash drive or emailed to the user. Please do not email scanned documents to third parties, as the email address that documents are sent from is unmonitored and you will not be able to see replies.
