Print, Copy & Scan Services

The Library has two multi-function devices (MFDs) which serve as printers, copiers and scanners for use by UNSW Canberra students and staff and by visitors to the Library. One machine is located in The Lounge on the entrance level (Level 1), with the second machine located in the concourse area on the top floor (Level 2). 

If you are a UNSW Canberra student or staff member these services can be paid for with the credit you have applied to your Student/Staff ID card.   

If you are a visitor to UNSW Canberra you are able to purchase a photocopy card at the Print/Copy Recharge Kiosk. A minimum of $2 must be added to your account and you can then use the MFD for copying (printing and scanning are not available). Please note that refunds are not given for unused credit.  

For assistance with the MFDs and/or the kiosk, please ask our friendly library staff. 

Important: Copyright compliance is your responsibility 

Observe the Copyright Act 1968 provisions and regulations at all times when accessing and printing resources both on and off-campus. A section of the Act is displayed near Library computers and the MFDs.
