Computers, Printers, & Scanners

Photocopiers & Scanners

Instructions are available at each machine. Ask at the Circulation Desk if you have questions.

Scans are free; copies cost $.25 each for black and white and $.50 each for color with a law library photocopy card.

Both public copiers allow you to scan to USB Flash drive and scan to email. In addition, there is a color flatbed scanner available in the Computer Lab on Sub-3. This scanner is attached to a computer with graphic editing software.

General Access Computers

Catalog Terminals: On each floor in the library, located near the central staircase you will find general access computers that are intended for searching in the library's online catalog. Anyone can use these computers to search the catalog and print out catalog results on the attached printers.

Research Terminals: On Sub-1, there are seven general access computers where students or anyone with a pass to use the library can do legal research.


Information about printing for Law students can be found on the Law School's Printing Policy page. Printing for other UM students can be found on the University of Michigan Information and Technology Services page.
