Printing Services

One microfilm/microfiche reader-printer is available for use in the Reading Room.

  • Printing is free of charge.
  • The reader-printer shuts down five minutes before the Reading Room closes.

One printer is available for use in the Reading Room to print electronic documents.

  • We encourage patrons to save electronic documents to a flash drive instead of printing.
  • Printing is free of charge.
  • There is no print management system. When you send a document to the printer, a cover page will print out with your copy so you will be able to identify your copies. Please note the computer location number sticker on the desk top behind each computer. This is the number that will be printed on the cover page. You MUST retrieve your printer documents immediately.
  • Use printers for NLM materials only.
  • The printer shuts down five minutes before the Reading Room closes.
  • Staff will recycle any documents left in the printer tray after 5:00 PM.
