Faculty RA Library Guide: Printing, Copying, and Scanning

Faculty RA Printing

The Law Library's printing is managed by the university's Information Technology Services (ITS). Instructions for RA printing are found in the document below.  

Caution: If you are using free Lexis Advance printing, use the print function within that database to send documents to the dedicated printer in Room 134 of the Law Library. Click here for detailed directions on Lexis Advance printing. Do not use the browser print function, because your account will be charged.

Faculty RA Copying and Scanning

Faculty members and administrative assistants may request a Law Library copying account for their research assistants by contacting Kevin Burford, Circulation Manager, at 319-335-9104 or kevin-burford@uiowa.edu, or Dawn Banovitz, Administrative Services Manager, at 319-353-5305 or dawn-banovitz@uiowa.edu.

Both Faculty RA copying and scanning may be done from the non-coin operated machine behind the Reference Desk on Level 2.

May I send library materials to the Copy Center? Yes. Bring materials to be photocopied to the Circulation Desk and fill out Copy Center forms with the professor’s name and the pages to be copied. The Copy Center may not be able to copy some materials because of copyright restrictions. Library staff will take the books to and from the Copy Center (Room 180), but you must pick up the copies at the Copy Center. If you want to know when copies are ready, please call the Copy Center staff. Hours are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday. They are closed for lunch from noon until 1:00 PM.

Faculty RA Microfiche, Microfilm, and CD-Rom copying

You may need to make paper copies from microfiche or microfilm or printouts from CD-ROMs in the Law Library's Special Services audio-visual room (Room 130). You will need to bring written permission from the professor, which will be kept on file, in order to charge these to his/her account. For more information, please contact Dawn Banovitz, Adminstrative Services Manager, at 319-353-5305 or dawn-banovitz@uiowa.edu.
