The Library does not have a public fax machine, but there is one available on campus at Blue Print Solutions in the Student Union for a fee.
In addition, we recommend an alternative for non-confidential information. 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. Do not use online fax services for documents containing social security numbers or other sensitive information.
Stop by the Technology Services Desk if you have questions or need help scanning.
