Due to decreased demand, the Law Library no longer has photocopy machines in the library. As an alternative, we do have a number of scanners throughout the library. The scanners provide patrons with the option to save the document on a flash drive, email themselves the document as a PDF, upload the document as a PDF to a cloud-based system like their own Google Drive or Dropbox account, or print the scanned documents.
Scanning and Printing
Lexis printers are available near the entrance of the basement on the 1st floor, behind the reference desk on the 2nd floor (the ground floor), and on the 3rd floor near the Rex E. Lee room. There is also a Lexis printer outside the law library in the Student Commons. For more information about these printers and others, see Printers for BYU Law Students.
The law library has a number of scanning options. The KIC scanners, which are ideal for books, are available near the 2nd-floor reference desk and in the Reserve Library on the second floor. There are also flatbed scanners near the first-floor entrance in the basement, near the 2nd-floor reference desk (two of them), in the Reserve Library on the second floor, and near the Rex E. Lee room on the 3rd floor. Multipage (feeder) scanners are located next to the 2nd floor Pharos printer (near the 2nd floor reference desk) and near the Rex E. Lee room.
Library employees at the reference and circulation desks are available to assist if you run into scanning problems.
For more information, see this page on Scanning.
