Saving Documents

Printing
Printing costs 6 cents for a single-sided or double-sided black and white page or 12 cents for a single-sided or double-sided color page. Most computers default to double-sided. To print a single-sided sheet go into the Properties section of the print settings to either uncheck "print on both sides" or switch to single-sided printing.

Scanners

Two scanners are available on the First Floor of McCain Library.  Several additional scanners are available in the Technology Production Studio (TPS), located on the Ground Floor of the building.  Exit the library portion of the building and turn right down the hallway.  The Technology Production Studio will be on your left. 

Photocopiers

There are three photocopiers in the library.  Two are available in the alcove on the Ground Floor behind the spiral staircase.  The other is located in between the printers on the First Floor.  Each copy costs 10 cents per side.  A single-sided copy will cost 10 cents and a double-sided copy will cost 20 cents.  To begin photocopying you must insert money into the money handler next to the photocopier, unless using a departmental code.  The money handler will take $1 and $5 bills.  Staff at the Reference Desk and Circulation Desk are happy to help you get started.
