AUB Users

Network printers and photocopiers are available in all libraries. Users who have an active AUBnet account can use the printers from any public computer in the libraries. The user also needs to have a printing/copying/scanning account with sufficient funds.


Non-AUB users may use the allocated stand-alone photocopier and a printer that is connected locally to a computer at Jafet,  who do not have an AUBnet account. Visitors must purchase a magnetic card to print or copy. Automatic dispenser machines to buy magnetic cards are available in Jafet Library in the photocopying and printing area. 

Fees: Printing of one A4 page costs 1 unit (L.L.50​​). The machine accepts only L.L5000, and the libraries do not deal with cash change.

Scanning (Stand-Alone)

There is at least one local flatbed scanner available in each of the libraries, locally connected to dedicated workstations.
