Copy / Print / Scan (CPS)

What is the CPS?
USEK Library is equipped with four self-service Copy-Print-Scan (CPS) multifunction machines, available at the Main Campus Library in Kaslik. Other facilities are available in the branch libraries.

With the CPS system you can:
  • Scan items directly to your email, free of charge (USEK users, alumni, and visitors)
  • Save your print jobs in the print queue for a maximum of four (4) hours until you release the order by swiping your credited USEK ID card at the printer station
  • Photocopy materials after swiping your credited USEK ID card at the CPS station.


Who can use the CPS?
Users with a valid USEK ID card are entitled to use the entire CPS service, and alumni and visitors can use photocopy and scan options.

  • To contribute to USEK’s sustainability efforts, reduce the number of pages by printing or copying on both sides of the paper;
  • Reduce the number of pages to print by changing the font size or reducing the margins.

Refund Notice
If a library printer creates poor quality printouts, bring them to the Library Systems Desk located in Basement Floor- Area 1 of the Main Library and request credit replacement on your CPS account.

The poor quality printout must be surrendered to receive a refund. Refund requests typically take a few business days to process.
