Copying, printing and scanning

You can print, copy or scan at SLQ on the Multi Function Devices (MFDs) in the Print Copy rooms on levels 1, 2 and 3, in the Family History / Micrographics area, level 3 and the John Oxley Library (JOL) Reading Room, level 4.

To use an MFD you need your SLQ membership card or a copy card. You can buy a copy card for $1 (which includes 30c credit) and top up your credit in the Print Copy rooms.

SLQ membership is free and gives you access to a range of services. To join, visit our Membership section, or visit the Welcome Desk on level 1 or Information Desk on levels 2 and 3 for more information.

Ask our staff if you need help at any time.

Please note:
All equipment (computers, printers, photocopiers, etc) will be turned off 15 minutes prior to closing time.
