Photocopiers in William S. Carlson Library

All library locations have photocopy machines. Photocopiers are located on the first, second and fifth floors of the Carlson Library..

Copies cost $0.10 per copy (8.5" x 11").  Copy machines can accept coins, and $1 or  $5 bills, or copies can be made using your Rocket Dollar account on your Rocket ID Card.  Money may be added to your Rocket Dollar account on the web from a credit card or in person at kiosk near cafeteria in Student Union.

The University contracts with an outside vendor to run the campus photocopying services. Their employees are the only people authorized to service or repair photocopy machines in the Library.  

Photocopiers in Mulford Health Science Library

The Mulford Library's photocopy room is located on the fifth floor of the Library in the northwest corner of the floor (room 511). In this room are photocopiers that use change, Rocket cards, and departmental copy codes.

Personal copy cards. Your Rocket ID Card can be used as a copy card if there is money on your Rocket Dollar account.  Money may be added to your Rocket Dollar account on the web with a credit card.  Rocket cards can be used at any copier on the Health Science Campus that has a card reader. 

Departmental copy codes. Departmental copy codes may be available for faculty and staff. Ask your departmental secretary or administrative assistant for more information. These codes can be used on the machines in the fifth floor copy room. If a code does not work on one copier, try another copier.

Mulford Library Access Services staff (419.383.4225) will scan articles and e-mail articles that are available in the library for faculty, residents, and staff upon request.

To report problems with any of the equipment in the photocopy room, stop by the service desk on the fourth floor of the Library. Make sure you have the tag number, which is posted prominently on the front of the machine. Problems with copy cards can also be reported at the desk.


The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." The same is true for material requested through Interlibrary Loan.   If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order or interlibrary loan request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order or request would involve violation of copyright law.

Users of copyrighted materials accessible in and through the Library are obligated to adhere to the guidelines regarding fair use for educational institutions. Library users bear personal responsibility for abiding by the copyright laws of the United States when using photocopiers, computers, software applications, reserve material services, when making slides for presentations, or when requesting material through Interlibrary Loan.

Scanning from Photocopy Machines

Some campus photocopiers also have a built in scanning function that can be used to send scans as PDF files to your H: drive or to your UToledo email address. These require you to log on with your UTAD account.
