You can save your scans to a USB key, send the scans to an e-mail address, upload them to cloud storage, or even save them to a tablet or smart phone using a QR code. The KIC scanners also include an electronic user guide outlining how to scan and save images and how to navigate its settings and menus. There is no charge for use of the KIC scanners.
  • The flatbed scanner is located in a separate carrel in the computer carrels near the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor. Instructions are available for saving a scan as a PDF or Word document, which can then be emailed.  The use of the flatbed scanner requires computer log-in and is limited to UT law students.


Copying is available for UT law students at any UTPrint machine in the library. The cost is $0.10 per page. 

Members of the public can use the UT Libraries photocopy machine on the 2nd floor of the library.  This machine does not accept cash.  The copier uses the UT Libraries printing and copying system.  Patrons must have a valid EID and password to use the copier. Funds can be added to the copying and printing account using a credit card.
