Scanning, Printing & Copying


The Haas Family Arts Library has four scanning workstations and two dedicated Book Scan Centers. There is no charge for scanning on any of these machines.

  • For quick copying of text, the best option is either of two Book Scan Center scanners, which enable patrons to create PDFs, JPEGs, TIFFs, or Word documents, and either email or save the files to USB, all via a touchscreen interface. These are both located on the main level.
  • For more complex projects requiring image editing or high resolution, three large Epson flatbed scanners are available, two on the main level near the copiers and one on the lower level near the stairs.
  • Scanning is also available on multifunction copier/printer/scanner machines, but there is a charge of $.01 per scan.

Yale readers who make use of scanners are expected to abide by the regulations of the Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code). Any violations of the Copyright Law at self-service machines are the responsibility of the reader and are not the responsibility of the Yale University Library.

Printing and Copying

There are three copier/printer/scanner machines in the Arts Library: two on the main level and one on the lower level. Color copying and printing are available on all machines.

Copying or printing in library locations across campus requires a PaperCut account and costs $0.10 per one-sided black-and-white image, $0.02 per second side, and $0.25 per color image.

Copy Stand

A copy stand with lights, which accommodates either film or digital cameras, is located in Haas #103 on the main level.
