Printing & scanning

Each of our 16 library locations offers photocopiers, printers and scanners for your use. You can reproduce either your own materials or library materials but please consider copyright when making copies. Our team can assist and direct you to information about copyright and the laws applying to reproduction of materials. As a general rule, there are no copyright issues if you’re reproducing for your own study or research purposes. If in doubt, please ask. Fees apply for printing and copying.
