You have two options.
Both require RISDbucks payment (if you don't have those, visit us at the circulation desk).
1. Print from a library computer
2. Print from your own computer
There are two color photocopiers (Xerox machines) in the library, one on the first floor and another in the Picture Collection. While you cannot send print jobs directly to these machines, you can use them to duplicate and copy in two different sizes. They can also be used to play with images and text using Reduce/Enlarge, Brightness, and Contrast settings. If you like reading or making zines, these are the machines to know! They are powerful but take a bit of practice to use, so don't hesitate to ask for help. You'll pay for photocopying with RISDbucks.
We also have a few different options for scanning, which is free! There is a KIC overhead scanner or book scanner in the first floor copy room. This is great for quick scans of documents or images and especially good for books. Files can be sent to yourself via email or saved on USB. There are also several more traditional flatbed scanners: two in the Picture collection and one larger Epson Expression 10000 in the main library. The Epson scanner has a 12" x 17" flatbed and is particularly good for scanning drawings and artwork. All of these machines are connected to iMacs equipped with scanning software and the Adobe editing suite.
Finally, if you want really high quality capture of your work, we have a copy stand. You must provide your own camera or rent one from Media Resources.

We are not a professional printing facility. Sometimes we run out of things. Our printers jam and break. You may need to be patient with us, since this is only one small part of our jobs. But we want to help you, so just ask!
