Color Printing Available

Wednesday, September 6, 2023 - 14:26

Self-service black & white printing and photocopying is a free service in the library. We realize, however, that color images in scientific literature are the norm now and that in some cases the color is essential for understanding the data presented. For this reason, we want to be able to provide color printing for students in a limited capacity.
