Fax

The Library does not have a public fax machine, but hter is one available on campus at Blue Print Solutions in the Student Union. In addition, we recommend an alternative. Bestfreefax.com is a website from which you can send a document to a fax machine. Scan your paper document at one of our many scanners and save it as an image (.jpg or. gif) or as a PDF. You can also send a .doc or .xls document.

Bestfreefax.com is upfront and simplistic. You enter your contact information, the contact information of the recipient, some text for a cover letter, attach the document, enter a captcha, and send. Stop by the Technology Services Desk if you have questions or need help scanning.
