Photocopying and Printing Policy

Photocopying and printing facilitates learning and project preparation.



The cost of black and white printing is six cents, and color printing is 29 cents. Photocopies are 10 cents per page for black and white and 20 cents per page for color and legal size. 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 Technology Campus Card Desk in Wright Hall or go online to the Meal and 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 Technology Campus Card Desk in Wright Hall. However, the library will accept cash from community members who choose not to put money on their cards. 

The priority for printing/copying/scanning at McKee Library is our students. As such, community users are limited to 40 pages per day for printing, scanning, and copying. 


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.

Copyright Law

McKee Library adheres to copyright law of the United States (Title 17 U.S. Code), which governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Any person using the library's equipment is liable for any infringement. 


Wireless Printing

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:
