Print, Copy, Scan

Printing, copying and scanning in the OWU Libraries are now mostly done with our all-in-one "green machines,". In Beeghly, we lovingly named them Bishop 1, Bishop 2 (located in our Info Commons area), and Beeghly Café (in the Internet Café).

For a list of other machine locations, information about wireless printing, as well as answers to some of our most commonly asked questions, please see below.

Also know that help is never more than a few clicks or steps away. If at any time you have a question or need help, try visiting our more detailed Print, Copy, Scan Guide or ask a library staff member. We would be happy to assist you.

Some questions we get asked a lot:

  • Print/Copy/Scan:

    Beeghly Main floor, Info Commons - Bishop 1, Bishop 2*, and Internet Café - Beeghly Café*
    Science Library*
  • Microreader Printing/Copy/Scan:

    Beeghly Lower Level
  • Additional Scanners:

    Beeghly Media Center
  • *wireless enabled

Yes, but not all printers have wireless printing capabilities. Currently, you can send a job to Bishop 1, Bishop 2, or our Internet Café printer in Beeghly. The MFD printer in the Science Library is also enabled for wireless printing.

You'll need to use the OWU WebPrint Form. Remember, it is recommended to save and then upload a document or PDF to the form rather than using the direct web address to print. It will make printing go much quicker!

  • Prints:

    Black & White = 5 cents per page
    Color = 15 cents per page
  • Copies:

    10 cents per page, regardless of color
  • Scanning

    Scanning to email is free and will send your documents in PDF form
  • Prints

    Each student is given 400 Print Credits or $20 worth of printing each semester for free. If you run out, you'll need to purchase more from the The Desk - cash only.
  • Copies

    At this time we only accept cash for copies. If you don't want to worry about carrying cash, remember, scanning your document to email is free. You can then use your print credits to print out the copies you need.

Unfortunately, no. Each side counts as a page. Double sided = 2 pages.

Before hitting print, go to File > Print and then look for a Printer Properties link before committing to print. Click on this option and a new window should appear allowing you to customize your print job.

Please note that printing defaults don't reset after someone logs off. Always check the properties before printing.

No. The machines are set to accept only two sizes of paper, legal and letter, of a specific weight. Printing on resume paper, colored paper, notecards, etc. must be done at the Print Services Department (Duplicating) as different paper can jam or break the machines, causing slower printing for everyone.

Print jobs can take a long time for several reasons: lots of users all at once, printing a large file with lots of colors and pictures - typical with E-Reserves or Blackboard files, or a problem with the machine. As long as a blue light is flashing on Bishop 1 and 2, the machine is working. We recommend you plan ahead, especially in between class changes, as this is our busiest printing time. Whatever you do, don't try to print again without first checking with a staff member.

Unfortunately, no. While our green machines might look like they have fax capabilities, they do not. However, fax services are offered in Hamilton Williams Campus Center at the Student Involvement desk for a minimal fee and in the Print Services Department/Duplicating found in the basement of the Science Center complex.
