Library Resources for Michigan Law Students: Printers and Scanners

Read What You Need, When You Need It

You may not be able to take Law Library books home, but you can still read them wherever you want. Whether you want a chapter of a treatise, the day's readings for your class, or a journal article you can't find online, it can be sent directly to your inbox for your reading convenience.

Printers and Scanners and Copiers, Oh My

Print on Your Law School Account

Printers on the Law School network are available on all three floors of the Underground Library, and LawIT will connect your laptop to a color printer on Sub-2. For more information about printing, see the Law School's Printing page.

You Can Take It With You with Scanning

Need to read a section of a book or a journal article? You can request scans directly from the catalog page by clicking the yellow "Request a Scan" button (see "Did You Know?" sidebar).

If you're already in the library, use the scanners on Sub-1 and Sub-2 to send book chapters, journal articles, or anything else for free to your email or flash drive. Both floors' Xerox scanners will also print pages, linked to your Law School network printing allocation.

KIC Scanner

In addition to the Xerox scanner on Sub-2, the two KIC Scanners on Sub-1 send high-quality, text-searchable PDFs to your device in no time.
