EKU Libraries offer technology-rich spaces and services to help with your study and research.

Printers and Copiers

Printers are located on every floor of the Main Library, in the Noel Studio and in each branch library.  Students, faculty and staff are allotted $25.00 in printing each year.  The libraries participate in the Pharos printing system supported by EKU Information Technology. Costs are ten cents for single-sided and fifteen cents for double-sided pages.

Photocopy machines are located on the second and third floors of the Main library and in each branch library and cost ten cents per page.

3D Printer

A 3D printer is located on the second floor of the Main Library behind the Service desk. We offer 3D printing services to EKU students, faculty, and staff. The 3D printer supports STL and OBJ files.

Currently there is no cost at this time for 3D printing.

How do I make a Request?

Students, faculty, and staff can make a request by stopping by the Main Help Desk at the Main Library. If you have your own file, please bring it in on a thumb drive. If you are making an object found on thingiverse.com please make sure you have the number that is located in the URL.

How long does it take to print?

Due to the high volume of print requests it can take 3-4 weeks for a request to reach top of the queue. Once the print job reaches the top of the queue it can take on average 3-4 hours for each print job.
