Scan & Photocopy

Free Scanning

Several BU libraries provide free use of our scanners. Our self-service machines are touch-screen devices with clear instructions. Scanned pages are converted to a pdf that can be saved to a USB flash drive or emailed as an attachment.

Self-service photocopiers are also available at a cost of $0.10 per page, payable by coins, bills, or Convenience Points.
