Printing, scanning, photocopying

The University Library offers photocopiers and book scanners for printing, scanning and copying in both the Central Library on Haarentor Campus and in the Departmental Library on Wechloy Campus.
To use these you need either a new library card or a CampusCard.

Cards can be charged with funds at terminals near the user-services counter in the central library (one terminal for cash and one for ec cards). New library cards and CampusCards can be charged with up to 55 Euros.

More info on the CampusCard on the university's webpage

Using the Multifunction Printers

  • To use the multifunction printers, your library card or CampusCard must be charged with a minimum of 1.40 Euros.
  • To print out a document from one of the library’s worksations, members of the university either choose “BIS_Print_BW” for black-and-white prints or “BIS_Print_Color” for color prints respectively. With your CampusCard, you can then use any of the multifunction printers within the building.
  • External users choose the printer with the designation “Drucken_im_BIS” to print a document from any of the library’s workstations. A pop-up window will then open, there you are required to enter the number you find on the back of your library card. It is seventeen digits long and must be entered completely. After, you can collect your print job at any of the library’s multifunction printers with your library card.
  • It is possible to scan directly to a USB stick. A library card is not needed. Simply connect your USB drive to the scanner.
  • A printer driver for notebook users is currently being worked on and soon be available on the homepage of the IT services.
  • When printing from a USB stick, the printer will default to a color print. You can change that after choosing the file you want to print.


  • Black and white: 5 cents per A4 page, 10 cents per A3 page
  • Color: 35 cents per A4 page, 70 cents per A3 page
  • Scanning: free of charge
