Computer and photocopying services in library

Computer services

  • The library has 23 Windows computer stations available; 11 on the first floor and 12 on the mezzanine.
  • All computers are connected to network printers. You need to be a current FPU student, faculty, or staff member to be able to print.
  • There are 12 additional stations on the mezzanine with electrical outlets for use with personal laptop computers. This is the best place in the library for laptop users, since convenient electrical outlets are not readily available on the first floor of the library. 

Photocopying services

A self-service photocopy machine is available on the first floor of the library. You need to be a current FPU student, faculty, or staff to use the photocopier. Please see the note on copyright restrictions below. Students, faculty, and staff are responsible for abiding by copyright restrictions.

We have a microfilm machines. Paper copies from microfilm readers are available for 10 cents each. Payment for microfilm copies must be made at the circulation desk.

Printing from your own Device


The instructions on the left (accurate as of 2/1/2018) from IT Services tell you how to print from your own device. Follow these steps, then sign out and follow the instructions on the printer you want to use.

These instructions are also available on Sunbird Central.

For questions about printing from your own devices, as well as any troubleshooting, please contact IT services directly (extension 3410). Librarians do not have the knowledge to troubleshoot this for you.

Computer/Printer/Photocopier not working?

If the computer is not pulling up the box on the screen that allows you to enter your ID number, try restarting the computer. If you are having any other problem, please contact a librarian.

Come to the main desk or contact us through the Ask a Librarian! chat and let us know when things aren't working. We may be able to help fix it, and if not we can call someone who can fix it. Letting us know when things aren't working right helps you as well as your fellow students. We appreciate it!




The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
