eScanners are available on the 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th floors.
Self-service copiers are located in the Copy Center on the main (2nd) floor and on each floor (except the 4th floor) of the Valley Library. You may pay for copies by OSU ID card, OSU convenience card, or by using the cash copier. The book copier is especially designed to make book copying easy and to protect the collection, and is located on the 2nd floor (Copy Center). If you need assistance with the equipment, the Circulation desk can help.
If you need assistance with copying due to a disability, the Circulation Desk can provide photocopying assistance during regular business hours. Contact Disability Access Services for extended assistance.
eScanners are located in the 2nd floor Copy Center, 1st, 3rd and 5th floors. These scanners allow you to scan documents (color, gray, b/w) 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.
Departmental cards (for copies only) may be obtained at the OSU ID center, Kerr Administration, Room B094, during regular business hours (Mon–Fri, 8am–5pm).
Patrons without an OSU ID card or convenience card may purchase a convenience card for $1.00 at the OSU ID center, using the Add Value machine in the 2nd floor Copy Center and at the Circulation desk. 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 737‒2493. The OSU ID Center can often adjust the card online. For problems with the OSU Card Cash/Add Value terminal, please contact the Circulation desk.
A cash copier is located in the 2nd floor Copy Center. Coins, $1.00 & $5.00 bills are accepted. Copies are 10¢ each.
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 or a copy business like Kinko's.
Student Multimedia Services (SMS) staff can make copies of maps for a fee. University Archives and Maps (third floor) has a large selection of maps for patron use. To place an order, bring the maps to SMS. Selected maps may also be checked out at Circulation.
