New Library Photocopiers
The two older photocopiers on the second floor of Boatwright Library were recently replaced with brand new copiers from Oce. One unit is geared for photocopying documents and features a document feeder. The other copier is designed for books and features a sloped copying area which prevents book spines from being damaged. They are both great improvements over the units that we had. If you require assistance while using them, you can obtain help at the Periodicals Help Desk, or downstairs at the Main Service Desk. A help phone is also available in the area which rings directly downstairs.
