Union Theological Seminary students:
In the Burke Library, UTS students receive a $2.00 printing balance (20 pages) with PawPrint each week in addition to their UTS Computer Lab print balance. This $2.00 is added each week but does not roll over from week to week. This can be used to print at PawPrint print stations throughout the Columbia University Libraries. Go to PawPrint to add to your balance and find more information.
There are no copy machines in the Burke Library, but there are scanners located on L1 and L3. There is no cost and no need to log in with a UNI and Password to use scanners.
