Printing and copying

We offer self-service printing and copying including USB and wi-fi printing. We can also copy Library material for you.

Self-service printing and copying

With your Library card or copy card you can use the self-service printers and copiers. The printers and copiers are in the Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room, the Verandah and the Special Collections area.

You can buy a copy card from one of the card kiosks. Copy cards cost $1 and include $1 credit. You can also add credit to your copy card or Library card at the kiosks. The kiosks accept cash and major credit and debit cards but do not give change. There are change machines in the Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room and the Verandah.

The kiosks are in the Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room, the Verandah and the Mitchell Library on the ground level.

Getting microfilm copies of Library material

We're able to arrange 35 mm microfilm copies of manuscripts, certain pictorial or rare printed material from the Mitchell Library and Dixson Library collections. We may not be able to copy some material due to fragility. There are restrictions to the amount of material that can be microfilmed.

The microfilming is completed by a commercial imaging firm.
