New Book Scanners replace Copy Services on Paper
Book scanners in action · printers for FU Scientists and Students in Computer Rooms · no paper print copies in FU Berlin university libraries
News from Aug 22, 2023
Three new book scanners are open for use by everyone free of charge in the FU Berlin Law Library. The scanners can be found in the scan room opposite the front desk and in the scan room in the Law Journal Reading Room. A short introduction is available. Please ask the front desk service, if you need assistance. A USB flash drive is necessary.
The three new scanners replace the old paper copy machines. Since Summer 2023, scan services free of charge in all FU Berlin libraries replace paid printing, copy- and scan-services by an external provider. This new service follows the concept "Let's scan!" of FU Berlin University Library that has been introduced in fall of 2022.
- Scans are free of charge for any library users. A USB flash drive is necessary as the scanner is without access to e-mail- or cloud-services.
- Printers for members of Freie Universität Berlin - scientists and students - continue to be available in the computer rooms (PC-Pools) in the back of the Law Library. The printing charge will be deducted from the printing account in FUB-IT/ZEDAT portal. More money can be added using either CampusCard or MensaCard. There is a computer in front of PC-Pool 1 for this charging service.
- There are no more paper copy services in the FU Berlin University Library. If you need paper copies please contact the local copy shops near campus. There is a list of close by services in the copy room in our library.
- If you did use your MensaCard for copy charges only, you can return the MensaCard within the opening hours of the Mensa. Refund will be given up to 30 €, and the down payment for the card (1,55 €) will be returned. More information (only in German) here: https://www.stw.berlin/mensen/faq-mensen/mensacard.html.

Please contact our front desk if you have questions or need assistance.
Important: You will continuously be able to use the Scan Tent for mobile phone scanning applications in the future.
