Printing from Valley Library Computers:

  • Similar to printing to a home printer. When document is open, choose File > Print
  • Release from any printer using OSU ID or ONID and password on the touchpad
  • Default double-sided printing
  • Color printing? Select Beaver Color Print instead of default BeaverPrint (b&w)


Printing from a laptop (beaverprint):

  • Select web print, then submit a job
  • Release from any printer using OSU ID card or ONID and password on the touchpad
  • Can’t print double sided.

BeaverPrint is available at all computers that require an ONID password and login name. All printing done using BeaverPrint will be charged to your ONID account. The University processes bills once a month and will send bill information to your ONID email address. Log in to ONID to look at your ONID bill.


General Public Printing

Please see the Borrowing & Information Desk for assistance.

Please note: cash/coin payment is not available for printing in the Valley Library.



Scanners are located on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th floors. These scanners allow you to scan documents (color, gray, black and white) in searchable PDF, quick PDF, JPEG, PNG, or Rich Text/DOC formats (DPI ranges from 100 to 600). You may send them to an onid@oregonstate email address or save to a USB drive, Cloud storage (Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or Box), or by QR code to a tablet or smart phone. It is recommended that you scan no more than 17 pages at a time to prevent the scanners from freezing. Your mailbox will also need to have sufficient storage space for your documents or they will be lost when sent. There is no charge for the service.



A cash copier is located in the 2nd floor Learning Commons. Coins, $1.00 & $5.00 bills are accepted. Copies are 10¢ each. Paper sizes available are 8.5x11 and 8.5x14. If you need assistance with the equipment, the Information Desk or Circulation staff can help.

If you need assistance with copying, Borrowing & Information Desk staff can provide copying assistance. Contact Disability Access Services for extended assistance.


Color Copies

A color photocopier is not available. However, students, faculty and staff can scan materials in color and print to the color printer. First, scan your color images and email them to yourself. Next, print out a color copy using Beaverprint Color.

Color copies can also be produced by OSU Printing & Mailing.


Map Copies

Media Hub staff can make copies of maps for a fee. There is a large selection of maps on the 3rd floor. Please ask at the Borrowing & Information Desk for help accessing the vertical files. To place an order, bring the maps to Media Hub's public service desk on the main floor of the library. Some maps may also be checked out at Borrowing & Information Desk.
