Pay for Print

Printing from computers at SIU medical library is handled via a pay-for-print system that works in concert with the existing photocopy card system:

  • Existing copy cards with cash value will work in both the photocopiers and the digital printers.
  • Costs are the same for black and white photocopies and prints: $.05/page.
  • Departmental copy cards that charge to accounts will NOT work with this system
  • Color printing is NOT available at this time.

Mediated Photocopy

  • Library staff will retrieve and copy materials for SIU faculty, staff, and residents according to prior departmental arrangements for services. See the fee-based services page for more information.
  • Article Request Form - Requesters must complete one form per book or journal article. Paper forms are available at the Circulation Desk.
  • SIU users who use PubMed may choose to electronically forward document requests to the Medical Library through Loansome Doc. Contact the Interlibrary Loan Department (217.545.2124) to register for this fee-based service.
