Printing and Scanning in the Libraries

All libraries on campus are equipped with "bookscan stations," which allow you to scan documents and save them to a USB drive, or to scan documents and then send them to a printer.

In order to scan documents, you must have the following:picture of open book

  1. A Cal 1 Card, with money loaded onto it (go here to make a deposit to your Cal 1 Card account). This is not the same as meal plan points! Your Cal 1 Card debit account is a separate fund on your card.
  2. A USB drive (you cannot email a scanned document from a bookscan station; you must save your document to a USB drive)
  3. Scanning and saving to a USB drive is 5 cents a page for students.
  4. Scanning documents and sending them to the printer is 10 cents a page for students. Color printing is 60 cents a page.

In order to send documents to the printer from any of the public computers in the libraries, you must have the following:

  1. A Cal 1 Card, with money loaded onto it (see above)
  2. A document that's on the Web or attached to your email (the public computers in the libraries will not open files from a USB or other drive)
  3. Printing is 10 cents a page for students (black and white). Color printing is 60 cents a page.
