Printing, Copying, and Scanning


Lewis Library provides multi-function devices on each level of the Library and in eight other locations on the UNTHSC campus. Each of these units handles computer printing and photocopying jobs, as well as scanning documents and sending them to e-mail.  The Pharos print management system controls these functions. A Pharos account must be created before using the equipment; see below for details. In addition, the Library has one black & white photocopier that can be used with coins or bills. It does not print or scan, and it is not connected to the Pharos system.
