What type of photocopying is available?

There are 2 photocopiers on the main floor of the Library, near the Research Helpdesk, and 2 Reader/Printers for making copies from microfilm and microfiche on Level C outside the Center for Academic Excellence. The Xerox machines have a book edge top, which means copying from books can be done without damaging the spines.

How much are the copies?

Copies are $.10 each, per side. One of the photocopiers accepts cash only and gives change; the other copier accepts Drew Debit Accounts only. The Microfilm/Microfiche Reader/Printers need exact change, which you can obtain at the Circulation Desk.

Can I scan images and save them on a USB drive?


  • Scanning can be done at either copier.
  • You can only scan to save to a USB memory stick.
  • Scanning is free, in color or black & white.
  • Results will be in PDF format.
  • Black & white printing can be done from one of our workstations, 10 cents a page; color printing, at 25 cents a page.

If you have any questions about this service, please ask at the circulation desk or Research Helpdesk.

Note that more complicated scanning may require consulting the ITS lab, at the back of the Academic  Commons.
