There are two microform reader-printer-scanners in Microforms Room (Room 2385).

Paying for Copying and Printing

The Copy Center has two printers which charge $.07 per page ($.14 for double-sided). The printers accept Wiscards or print cards.

UW students, faculty and staff may pay with a Wiscard Campus Cash or Print Cash account by entering a NetID and password. To add money to your account, visit the Wiscard Campus Cash/Printer Cash page.

Non-UW patrons may obtain a print card at the circulation desk.  Funds may be added with a credit card or with cash using the card kiosk located on the second floor Memorial Library.

Note that the Law Library no longer accepts debitcards. Visit the copy card replacement page for more information on the transition.

You may print from any of the six public workstation computers located near the Reference Desk or wirelessly from your laptop.  To configure your laptop for wireless printing to the Copy Center printers, see the Law Library's GoPrint page for wireless printing.

Law School Copy Shop

The Law School Ditigal Print Shop (formerly know as the Copy Shop) also provides duplication services. It is located in Room 2115 of the Law School.
