Copiers & Scanners

Copier Maintenance

Please report non-working copy machines to library staff.

Go to the nearest service desk to report a non-working copier and to find out where other copy machines are located.


Each copy costs $0.10

Black and white copies cost $0.10/page and color copies cost $.50/page.  Currently enrolled Brooklyn College undergraduate and graduate students already have a Print/Copy Account that has a prefunded (free) balance for PRINTING only.  Use the same account for copies, but you will have to add funds because copying cannot be paid for with your printing balance.


Copy machines are located throughout the Library.

Copy machines are located in the following areas:

  • Lower Level: by Government Documents
  • 1st Floor: next to the Library classrooms, next to the Christoph Kimmich Reading Room
  • 2nd Floor: behind the look-up stations near the elevators
  • 3rd Floor: behind the look-up stations near the elevators

Paper Options

Only the paper provided by the Library may be used in the copy machines.

Students, faculty, and staff can use the fee-based services of the BC Copy Center, located in 0714 James Hall, (718) 677-6166. The BC Copy Center has transparencies and colored paper.

There are nearby commercial services that may offer specialized copy services as well. The closest is "Far Better Copy" on Hillel Place.
