The Map Library's two Full Set of Application computers can print to a b/w letter-size printer, color letter-size printer, and a color HP plotter loaded with 36" wide paper. The printers are all located on 2-West. Printing costs are the same as in other computer labs. For more information about printing services in the MSU Libraries, see the Print, Plot, & Scan page.


The Map Library has a photocopier that can make copies up to 11" x 17" in size. Photocopies cost $0.10 per sheet. The machine takes dollar bills, coins, and library copy cards. The copy center on 2-West has a color copier that will make copies up to 11" x 17" in size. Most Map Library items can be checked out for in-building use only to take items to the copy center. Ask Map Library staff before removing anything from the Map Library.


The Map Library has a letter-sized color scanner available for use with items in the Map Library's collection. Scans cost $0.05 each, payable in cash. Please bring a USB drive or a writable CD for saving your files, as the computer can not save scanned images to the computer desktop. Media are also available for purchase in the copy center on 2-West. Patrons with a MSU NetID may carry images to a Full Set of Applications computer nearby for further editing and use. In Fall Semester 2011 we will be acquiring new scanning options. The copy center also has numerous scanning options and maps may be checked out for in-building use.

More self-serve copying and scanning options are available in the copy center. Please refer to Scanning Options at the MSU Libraries (pdf) for a complete list of scanning options.
