Printing, Scanning, and Photocopying: Home

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

Adding money to your print account when the Library is closed

Q: How do I add funds to my account while the Library is closed?

A: If you need to add money to your printing account while the Library is closed, you can do so in the Beren Study Center, open 24/7.

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 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 two dedicated scanners: one located in the Beren Study Center and another located across from the Reference Desk. Additionally, all Library printers can be used for scanning. For help in using either the dedicated scanners or the Library printers, please see a Library staff member.
