Printing, Scanning, and Photocopying

Printing

Need to print that syllabus, those lecture notes, that paper? You can do it in the library! Students and visitors to the Weinberg Memorial Library can send print jobs to one of our Pharos UniPrint stations from all Library computers as well as from personal laptops connected to the University wireless network.

Pharos UniPrint Stations

There are currently three Pharos UniPrint stations in the library.

Paying for Prints

To cover the costs of paper and toner, the library charges a fee for printing at our workstations. Charges are per side of paper. The default setting is for duplex printing; a single sheet of paper would have two printed sides. Fees for the 2014-2015 academic year are:

Print TypeCost Per Side of Paper
Black and White $0.07
Color $0.25

Students, faculty, and staff may pay for prints using funds on their RoyalCard. Visitors can purchase Visitor copy/print cards at the library’s 1st Floor Circulation Desk. Funds may be added to Royal Cards and Visitor Cards via the RoyalCard Online Office or at the Value Transfer Station located on the 1st Floor. Color printing is available for those with University of Scranton Royal Cards.  For those who are not affiliated with the University, the Scranton Public Library has color printing.

Student Printing Subsidy

The library subsidizes student printing by adding money to each student's RoyalCard (Tender 1 account) for each semester the student is enrolled. The funding is applied on the first day of the session and remains until the end of the academic year. Once the student uses all of the subsidized funds, prints are charged to the student’s RoyalCard (Tender 2 account). Subsidized prints apply only to computer printing and prints from scanning, not to photocopying.

Students can view the balance remaining in their subsidized printing allocation via the RoyalCard Online Office or the Value Transfer Station located on the 1st Floor. The student's account balance is also displayed each time they print from a Pharos UniPrint station.

Allocations for the 2014-2015 academic year are:

Scanning

The Weinberg Memorial Library has two Scannx Book Scanners. One is located in the Reilly Learning Commons, and the other is in the 2nd floor computer lab. Books and documents can be scanned and saved in a variety of formats, including searchable pdf. Files can then be sent to a flash drive, email account, device such as phone or tablet, Google Docs, or the printer. The scanners are a greener alternative to printing, and there is no cost to scan. If prints are desired, students are able to use their library subsidized copies.

Photocopying

The Weinberg Memorial Library has photocopiers located in the Reilly Learning Commons, the Pro Deo Room, and on the 2nd Floor. Reader/printers for copying from microfilm/fiche are also located on the 2nd Floor.

Paying for Photocopies

To cover the costs of paper and toner, the library charges a fee for photocopying. Charges are per side of paper. The default setting is for duplex printing; a single sheet of paper would have two printed sides. Fees for the 2014-2015 academic year are:

Print TypeCost Per Side of Paper
