Services and Facilities: Printers, Photocopiers & Scanners

Printers, Photocopiers & Scanners

Printers and Photocopiers

Four printers and photocopiers are located on the Main floor of the Library in the coffee shop area.  All four machines act as printers, photocopiers and scanners. One machine will print in colour.

You may send documents to print directly to the library printers from any public workstation in the library, or upload them from our StudentPrint web platform from your personal computer or other computers on campus. You will be prompted to choose either the colour or black-and-white printers. You release your print jobs by tapping your ID card on the printer you have chosen.

  • Printers/photocopiers use “Mountie Money” payable with University ID cards ($0.12 per page and $0.65 per colour page).  You may add money to your Mount Allison ID card using the machine on the Main floor, just outside the coffee shop and to the left of the elevator. The printers require an active Mount Allison student, staff or faculty ID card to print. Visitors and patrons with community or alumni cards can e-mail print requests to Access Services.


All printers in the coffee shop may be used as scanners to scan and e-mail your documents. Scanning is free, but you will still need to log in at a printer/scanner by tapping your ID card.

Printing Information on Microfilm

Microform readers are available in the Microform room on the ground floor.  Two of the readers are connected to PC workstations to enable scanning. These computers are not connected to printers. Scanned documents must be saved to a device (e.g., USB stick) and then printed.
