Printing, Scanning, and Photocopying: Home

This is a guide to the printing, scanning, and photocopying resources available at the Library.


NewThe Library has a new, improved print management system called PaperCut


Print Allowance

Note to First and Second Year Medical Students:

As part of the Paperless Curriculum initiative, the Office of Medical Education provides first and second year medical students with a print allowance. These accounts are managed by the Library to enable you to use the Library's printers using the PaperCut print management system.

  • Log on to PaperCut with your AD username (the same way you log on to Canvas or MediaSite).
  • At the printer, use your Einstein ID to release your print jobs.


Comb Binding Service

Drop off your documents at the Circulation Desk. Library staff will bind them for you using our new plastic comb binding system.

 Here’s what you need to know:

  1. There is no charge for this service.
  2. Your document will be bound within 24-hours of drop-off.
    • Documents dropped off on Fridays will be processed on Sundays.
    • Documents dropped off on the day before a holiday will be processed the next day the library is open.
  3. You will be notified by email when your document is ready for pickup.

Document Requirements:

  • Document must have a margin of at least ½” to allow room for holes
  • Edges must flat, smooth, and straight
    • If you’re having an old document rebound, consider photocopying any pages that are jagged or wrinkled.
  • Remove all staples before submitting document.
  • 20 sheet minimum (40 pages, double-sided)
  • 200 sheet minimum (400 pages, double-sided)
    • If your document contains more than 200 sheets, consider dividing it into sections and binding them separately.

Here is what a comb looks like:

Here is an example of a document that could not be bound. Note the torn edges.


The Library has a dedicated scanner, located in the Beren Study Center. Additionally, all Library printers can be used for scanning. For help in using either the dedicated scanner or the Library printers, please see a Library staff member.

  • Scan color and black and white documents and photos.
  • Scan books and documents into PDF, searchable PDF, Word, JPEG, and PNG file formats simply by touching the screen for the preferred file format.
  • Scanned files can be saved on a USB flash drive, cloud storage (including Dropbox, Google Drive,, and OneDrive), and email.


The Library's four printers can also photocopy in black and white as well as color.
