Printing and Scanning in the Libraries
All libraries on campus are equipped with "bookscan stations," which allow you to:
- scan documents and save them to a USB drive, or
- scan documents and then send them to a printer. You cannot email a scanned document from a bookscan station.
Scanning to a USB drive is free. Moffitt Copy Center sells flash drives.
Scanning documents to print is 8 cents a page (color printing: 60 cents a page).
In order to send documents to the printer from any of the public computers in the libraries, you must have the following:
- A document that's on the Web or attached to your email (the public computers in the libraries will not open files from a USB or other drive)
- A Cal 1 Card, with money loaded onto the debit account (go here to make a deposit to your Cal 1 Card account).
This is not the same as meal plan points! Your Cal 1 Card debit account is a separate fund on your card.
