Scan your card or enter your MTMail user name and password at the printer. Students get an $8.00 printing allowance (320 black and white prints) each semester. Each page is 2.5 cents, thereafter. See the full Printing FAQ for more information.

Color Printing. Color prints are 5.7 cents per single-sided 8.5" x 11" page and may be drawn from your printing allowance. You may print color jobs from any library printer and pick them up from the color printer in the Digital Media Studio on the 2nd floor.

There are 39 scanners in the Walker Library. One scanner is located on the first floor in the Research Commons, and 38 are located on the 2nd floor. Second floor scanners are located in the Digital Media Studio (DMS) and in the adjacent computing area. Thirteen of the scanners are attached to the specialized DMS workstations that are intended primarily for digital projects. The remainder of the scanners are at the general workstations to the south of the service desk. When not needed for scanning, these computers may be used for general purposes.  See scanning instructions.

*iCopy is installed on all computers that have scanners. This program allows you to scan your document and then print it --for free! Instructions may be posted near the scanner computers, or you can get help at the Technology Services desk or the DMS desk.
