Photocopying and Scanning

Copiers with Scanning Feature

The departmental libraries in C, D, T, U, V and in Building X provide copiers. These machines are designed to print as well. Some copiers include a scanning feature as well. You can determine the actual placements of the copiers in the respective floor plans.

Using Copiers with UniCard

The amounts due for copying and printing are debited to your UniCard (Student ID card), Servicecard or Guest Card. Scanning is free of charge, but you need a UniCard or Servicecard, too. Scanned documents can be saved directly to USB flash drive.

In the discussion room of the law library (U1-142) a special shelf was put up, where current editions of relevant books are arranged and tied with chains. These books cannot be taken away for copying etc. For this reason the library has installed a scanning machine right in front of the shelf in order to enable users to scan pages and save them to USB flash drive. You may choose between the options colour, gray-scale and black-and-white (text scans). Colour and gray-scale scans will automatically be saved in JPG format, text scans in TIF format. The handling is easy and free of charge.
