Campus printers also serve as photocopiers. There is a printer/copier on the first floor of the library. There is also one in the student lounge area on the lower level of the Boonshoft.
Printing/Photocopying is $0.05/page for black and white; $0.25 for color.
Is there somewhere on campus I can send a fax?
The RICOH printer on the first floor of the library has a fax line. To access the fax option, login and then press the System Home button. Several options will display. Select the Fax option.
The phone number must be preceded by 9 to get an outside line. Example: 9 937 395 0000
If the fax is being sent to a number outside the 937 area code, it must be preceded 91. Example: 91 888 888 8888
Group Study Rooms
There are group study rooms on the lower level of the Learning Commons. Rooms may be reserved using the SmartWay reservation system. Use the instructions provided on the library home page to create an account on the reservation system, then you can make reservations on the panel outside the room you want to reserve, by downloading and using the Smartway2 app, or by using the reservation link on the library home page. While it is possible to make an anonymous reservation without an account, anonymous reservations can be cancelled by anyone, so it is best to create an account.
While a study room may be used without a reservation, please respect others’ reservations.
We have more than 1,400 items, including DVDs & CD-ROMs.
To obtain materials not available in-house or through OhioLINK, please contact the reference librarian.

The library collection has about 8,000 books and 125+ current journal subscriptions. Back issues of journals are either bound or on microfiche. Bound journals are stored off campus. Contact the reference librarian about obtaining copies of articles from journals in storage.
We have more than 100 databases that are currently available online via the library web page, including: CINAHL, MEDLINE, Up to Date, and Academic Search Complete.
