Printing, Copying, Scanning

Throughout the University Library building there are several centrally located rooms where you can use your Ucard to print, copy and scan your materials.

Multifunctional machines are available for speedy copying, printing, and use of the University Computer Centre scan- to-mail system. Book scanners facilitate easy digitalisation of text passages from print media. Microfilm and microfiche scanners permit a modern use of the University Library’s comprehensive collection of these media, from dissertations to historical newspapers and journals.
