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 and Bishop 2 (located in our Info Commons area)
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*
Additional Printers:Beeghly Café Printer - (black & white only)*
Microreader Printing/Copy/Scan:Beeghly Lower Level - by vending machines
Additional Scanners:Beeghly Media Center
- *wireless enabled
Yes, but currently only Beeghly Library has wireless printing capabilities. You can send a job to Bishop 1, Bishop 2 or our Café printer.
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 and Copies:Black & White = 5 cents per page
Color = 15 cents per page
Copies cost double if paying with cash
ScanningScanning to email is free and will send your documents in PDF form
PrintsEach 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 reference or circulation desk - cash only.
CopiesYou can pay cash or buy a refillable copy card. Cards may be purchased for a dollar from the circulation desk or the machine near Bishop 1 in the Info Commons.
Don't want to bother with a card? Scan your document to email, 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.
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 machine, 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 Eres 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.
