Self-Service Copiers & e-Scanners


Self-service copiers are located in the Copy Center on the main (2nd) floor and the 1st floor of the Valley Library. You may pay for copies by OSU ID card, OSU convenience card, or by using the cash copier. Paper sizes available are 8x11, 8x14, and 11x17 (2nd floor Copy Center). If you need assistance with the equipment, Circulation can help.

If you need assistance with copying due to a disability, Circulation can provide copying assistance during regular business hours. Contact Disability Access Services for extended assistance.

The XPress Stop in the Memorial Union Room 109 provides printing and faxing.


eScanners are located in the 2nd floor Copy Center, 1st, 3rd and 5th floors. These scanners allow you to scan documents (color, gray, black and white) in searchable PDF, quick PDF, JPEG, PNG, or rich text formats, and send them to an email address or store on a flashdrive. It is recommended that you scan no more than 17 pages at a time to prevent the eScanners from freezing. Your mailbox will also need to have sufficient storage space for your documents or they will be lost when sent. There is no charge for the service at this time.

Copying with ID Cards or Convenience Cards

Students, Faculty and Staff may add value to their ID card at the OSU Card Cash/Add Value terminal in the Copy Center. Your card may then be used for library copying and printing, and for food items at Java II (first floor) and the campus food courts. The copy value on your OSU ID is separate from your Housing & Dining food account.

Department copy cards may be obtained at the OSU ID Center,.

Patrons without an OSU ID card or convenience card may purchase a convenience card for $1.00 using the Add Value machine in the 2nd floor Copy Center and at Circulation. You will need to add value to the card at the OSU Card Cash/Add Value terminal (cash only) or online (Visa or Mastercard).

If you lose money in the OSU Card Cash/Add Value terminal, call the OSU ID Center at 737โ€’2493. The OSU ID Center can often adjust the card over the phone. For problems with the OSU Card Cash/Add Value terminal, please contact Circulation.

A cash copier is located in the 2nd floor Copy Center. Coins, $1.00 & $5.00 bills are accepted. Copies are 10ยข each.

Color Copies

Color copies can be made in the library by using the eScanners. You can scan your color images and email them to yourself. You can then print out a color copy using the Learning Commons color printer.

Color copies can also be produced by OSU Printing & Mailing.
