Copiers, Scanners, and Printers

Bust on windowshelf


There are two photocopiers near the middle of the Lower Level. The cost is $0.10 per page. You can feed coins or paper bills up to $5 into the photocopier, and receive change for any unused amount. You may also purchase a rechargeable copy card for $1.00 (card = $0.60 plus $0.40 credit towards copies). The copy card machine is located in the copier area.

Faculty members wishing to make copies should ask for assistance in the Periodicals Office on the Lower Level.

Microform Viewer/Copiers

There are two microform viewer/copiers located near the photocopiers on the Lower Level.  You may use these machines to view items from the library's microfilm and microfiche collections, and make free printouts of individual pages.


There are two scanners available on the Main Level.  These are connected to the multimedia workstations in the Learning Commons.  There is also one scanner connected to the public computer nearest to the restrooms on the Lower Level.

These machines can be used to make electronic copies of pages from books, journal articles, photographs, and printed documents. There is no charge for using the scanners.  If you need to use a scanner but the attached computers are all being used for non-scanning purposes, please see a library staff member. He or she will see if the patron can relocate to another computer.


For members of the college community, printing at Geisel Library involves two steps: sending your print job to one of the college's print queues, and releasing it by swiping your Saint Anselm College ID card on the card reader adjacent to one of the library's printers.  To learn more, see this guide to the Print Anywhere system.  You can print from any of the library's desktop computers by printing to either the "Saint Anselm BW Printer" (for regular black-and-white printing) or the "Saint Anselm CLR Printer" (for color printing).  To print from your laptop computer or mobile device, follow the steps in our User's Guide to Wireless Printing.

Guests to the college can print from any of the computers on the Lower Level.  You must release your print job at the Guest Release Station on the Lower Level, near the photocopiers.  You will need to insert cash in the coin box before printing. Guest printing costs 10 cents per page.

There are two regular printers and one color printer available on the Main Level across from the IT Help Desk.  The Upper Level has one regular printer, and the Lower Level has one regular printer plus the guest printer.


Geisel Library does not have any fax machines available to members of the Saint Anselm community. However, there are two fax machines on campus that are available to students. Students can use the fax machine in the Campus Bookstore for local or long-distance calls, and can use the fax in the Switchboard Office (Poisson Hall, 2nd floor) for local calls only.
