Reed Library: Print, Copy, Scan


  • Make photocopies using your FREDCard.
  • Photocopies are $.10/page.
  • Funds will be deducted from your FREDFunds.
  • If you do not have sufficient FREDFunds, you may add value to your card in the Student Accounts Office, or using the Valueport machine outside the Library, near the McEwen computer lab.


Our book scanners allow patrons to scan documents to PDF or JPEG formats, to e-mail or save to a flash drive.


One of our microform machines allows for free printing direct from the film. The others scan the film to a PDF, which you may email to yourself to print. Students can print this PDF using their print quota. Community members will need to purchase a print top-up card if they wish to print the item in the Library.

Printer Locations

Reed Library has three black and white printers and one color printer available on the first floor. These printers have been placed in different spaces to help maintain social distancing.
