There are 7 touchscreen bookscanners on the table behind the reference desk (directly north of the elevator) on the 2nd floor and a KIC Bookeye scanner in the southeast corner of the second floor near the PQ call numbers. Read about it here.


The library’s copy machine, a Xerox 7120, is located on the 2nd floor between the Reference Desk and the print release stations.

The Xerox 7120 offers: 
1)  Color and B&W copying
2)  Color and B&W printing of TIFF and PDF files (not Word) from a USB drive 

Color copies or prints are $0.15.  

Purchase JAMEX copy/print cards from the dispenser near the digital sign close to the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor of the library. Buy the card with a $1 bill, then re-insert the card to add more value. Cards are reusable, but not transferrable to other libraries. Report library copy machine problems to the library Circulation/Reserve Desk, 212-817-7083 or library-circulation@gc.cuny.edu.
