Using the Copy Machines: Introduction

Copies are 5¢ for black-and-white, 10¢ for color. Scanning is free.

Using the Copy Machines

Please read, and take to heart, the following notice that is posted near all of the Library's copy machines:

NOTICE: The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. The person using this equipment is responsible for any infringement.

See here for more information about copyright.

The copier will display a screen similar to the image below. Tap your card on the copier's integrated card reader (usually to the left of the screen) to get started.

Enter your MSM credentials, in the format username/password (e.g. ilastname, [password]--this is the same login you use for your MSM email account). You will only need to do this once to link your ID card.

Once you’ve logged in, tap “Scan and Send," and you should now see a “Send to Myself” button. This will automatically add your email address to the destination list, and you can begin scanning. (The ability to preview your scan will be added shortly.)


Using your MSM email account (onlyl), from any device, send as an attachment the document you want to print to:

Supported file types include pdf, jpg, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, pub, rtf, txt, xps, html, and eml. (You'll want to convert your Finale and Sibelius files to one of these formats.)


  1. Go to any Library machine and tap your card to log in.
  2. Select “Secure Print” to open your queue.
  3. Select the jobs you would like to print. You can also modify finishing options at this time, such as the number of copies, duplex mode, and stapling/hole punch (where supported).
  4. Select “Print + Delete” (for a normal print) or “Print + Keep” (if you will need this job again later that day).
    Note: Your print jobs will remain in the queue for 12 hours from submission, or until you select either “Print + Delete” or “Delete."
  5. Remember to log out when you are finished, either by touching “Log Out” or tapping your card on the card reader again.
