Wireless Printing

You can also print to library printers from your personal laptop or tablet. Send a document from anywhere on campus to a printer in the lobby of Jerome Library. You will not be charged until you release the job by swiping your ID or entering your username and password at the release station next to the printer.

Any questions about configuring your device should be directed to the Technology Support Center (419-372-0999).

3D Printing

Free 3D printing is available in the Collab Lab.

Scanning

The library's copy machines can be used as scanners. You do not need to log in or have money on your BG1 card to scan.

There are also two high-quality scanners behind the Research & Information Desk.

Directions for scanning are located near the machines. If you need help, please ask at the ITS Help Desk in the library lobby computing area.

The Collab Lab and Center for Archival Collections also both have high-quality flatbed scanners for student use. The Collab Lab is located in room 122 on the first floor of Jerome Library. The Center for Archival Collections is located on the 5th floor of Jerome Library.

Photocopies

Jerome Library has copy machines on floors 1-5. Costs are the same as for printing. All machines can make color or black and white copies.
