General Information on Printing, Scanning & Copying

Paying for Printing and Copying

The Libraries' Pay-to-Print System

UO Libraries use a pay-to-print system called UnipriNT. You'll find instructions on how to use that system, as well as instructions on how to print from a laptop to the public printers in Knight Library or the Science Library via ethernet or wireless on this page.

Payment Options

Duck Bucks: All UO students, faculty, and staff have pre-established Duck Bucks accounts. Non-UO patrons may purchase a generic Duck Bucks card with a unique account number. The empty card costs $1. These cards can be bought from the Duck Bucks machine in the  Checkout/Information lobby in the Knight Library or from the UO Card Office (ground floor of the Erb Memorial Union).  For security, we recommend registering generic cards and account numbers at the UO Card office at your earliest convenience (541.346-3113). The magnetic stripe on the UO Libraries Oregon Card also works with the Duck Bucks debit program.

If you are a student, you can add value to your Duck Bucks account online.

Departmental Cards: UO departments may purchase generic cards and establish Duck Bucks accounts by Journal Voucher. Contact the UO Card Office at 6-3113

Photocopying for Patrons with Disabilities

Library staff will photocopy materials for patrons with disabilities. You may ask staff at any service desk for assistance; you must provide cash or Duck Bucks for the cost of the copies. If you have more copying than can be done immediately, you may leave your Duck Bucks card with the staff and they will arrange for it to be done within 24 hours.

Copyright Compliance

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Patrons are responsible for their own copyright compliance and are liable for any infringement resulting from copying, laser printing, or scanning.
