Frequently Asked Questions


Question: Where can I copy and print materials?


Two multifunction copier/printers are available in the lobby on the 1st floor of the Poynter Library, located between the Circulation and Reference service desks. Prints and copies are available at a rate of 15 cents per page for black and white, and 20 cents per page for color. The two printers have been named “Penguin” for black and white prints, and “Peacock” for color prints.

The library has transitioned to a cardless print and copy system; the USF ID and/or vending card is no longer necessary. Coins or bills can be used on the machines, in denominations of $10 or less. A coin changing station is available to convert your $1, $5, or $10 bills into quarters for use in the multifunction machines, although each machine is capable of operating on both coins (nickels, dimes or quarters) as well as cash ($1 and $5 denominations only). This new process eliminates the USF card as a method of payment, with the goal of having an online printing service available in the future integrated into students’ Blackboard accounts.

Users who have remaining balances on their cards are welcome to use their balance in the Campus Computing print area in BAY226, and can begin using the cardless system immediately. Microform printing is also available, but requires the use of a USB thumb drive on an attached machine on the third floor adjacent to Archives & Special Collections.
