There are two digital copiers in the library. One is on the 3rd floor and the other on the 5th floor of the Isché Library beside the internal elevator. Each copier is equipped with a document feeder. Additionally, the photocopiers can act as scanners; users may scan to a flash drive or to an email address. Scans with a large number of pages cannot be sent via email; these must be broken into smaller sections for the emails to be delivered successfully.

Sending a Print Job to the Print Stations
When you print in either the Library Commons or in the Library, your print job will default to the floor that you are on. You will be prompted for a userid and password; this is not your LSUHSC credentials but can be a simple choice to differentiate one print job from another. The 4th floor printer defaults to color but can be changed to monochrome, the 3rd floor printer is black and white only.
Retrieving a Print Job at the Print Stations
Swipe your card on the card reader. Select your print-job name and press "Print". Enter the password you created when you sent the print job. Your print job will be distributed and your card will be charged.
Departmental Copy Cards
The Pay-Per-Print system does not work with departmental copy cards; those cards work only with the Library photocopiers.
