McKee Library


Information and Policies: Photocopying and Printing


Photocopying and printing facilitates learning and project preparation.



The cost of black & white printing is 6 cents, color printing is 29 cents, and photocopies are 10 cents per page.  Patrons may scan to email for free.


In order to photocopy or print, student patrons must swipe their ID card through the scanner by the copier or printer. Students must add money to their card at the Information Systems Campus Card Desk in Herin Hall, or go online to the Meal & Prepaid Plan page under General Shopping (this method takes 24 hours to activate), to pay for copies and printouts. The price of the copy is subtracted from the total on the card for each page. The library does not accept cash under any circumstances. Students should not ask.


Faculty must use their personal ID card to make copies. We no longer accept departmental charges.


Community members with library cards will be requested to put money on their cards at the Information Systems Campus Card Desk in Herin Hall.  However, the library will accept cash from community members who choose not to put money on their cards.


The Library will assist visitors in making copies on request.  Photocopying is limited to library resources and there is a maximum of fifty copies.  Please see the Circulation desk or Periodicals desk for assistance.


Wireless Printing

Southern faculty/staff/student patrons may print documents wirelessly from their laptops or from laptops checked out at the library Circulation desk.  Patrons must have a valid Southern or Library Community ID card with available funds.

McKee Library laptops already have the software installed, so they can print to the printer in the Periodicals area of the library without further setup.  Patrons desiring to print from their personal devices will find software instructions below:
