Scanning and Copying Maps
Please bring a USB memory device to save your scans.
- Flatbed scanners (several 8.5" x 14" and one 11" x 17") are attached to computers in the Map Library and are available to anyone with a UO Login. One flatbed scanner is attached to a public computer and may be used by anyone.
- Book scanners located in the first floor copy room (around the corner) can capture map images up to 16"x24."
- Large sheet scanning (up to 42" wide) is available to get a scan of an entire map. Drop-off your map at Room 134 in the map area and we will scan it for you within one business day. A small service fee applies.
Black and White Photocopiers are available throughout the library.
Library printers can print up to 11" x 17" in color. The Libraries are not able to print a full-sized map. The School of Architecture and Allied Arts' A&AA Output Room can print full-sized maps from electronic images. Also, local copy shops may be able to print a full sized map from your scanned image.
Off Campus Access
Oregon University System users (current faculty, staff, students) who are not able to come to the Eugene UO Campus may request to have materials scanned as part of our Aerial Photography Research Service (APRS). We will charge OUS in-person rates for scanning and deliver the scans via the Internet. Contact APRS staff about fees.
Non-OUS affiliated users and all commercial users may also use the APRS to request scans of maps that are in the public domain (that is, not subject to copyright). Standard fees will apply. Fees are charged to cover labor and equipment.
