Photocopying

Photocopying in the Library

  • How much does photocopying cost?
    One-sided, black and white photocopying on 8.5" x 11" paper is $.20/sheet if you use a copy card, $.25/sheet when you use coins. We are trying to keep the cost we extend to the UMass community at an absolute minimum.
  • How do I pay for my photocopying?
    You can purchase a Copy Data card from the dispenser located on the first floor of the library or pay with coins at the copier.
  • How do I purchase new Copy Data cards?
    • In Library Purchase - 1st Floor Dispenser: A $1 bill is required to purchase a card with $.60 value (the card itself costs $.40).
    • Additional value can be added to cards using $1, $5, $10, or $20 bills.
    • Direct or Bulk Card Ordering for UMMS Departments: Purchase Orders must be used to order cards directly from Copy Data, the library's service provider.
