Printing, copying and scanning

Printing  |  Copying  |  Scanning


Most of our libraries have printers.

  • Go to USIT's pages for information on how to print and print quotas.
  • For every print, an amount is withdrawn from your print account. If the account is empty, or the balance is low, you can fill up your print account.
  • The price per A4 sheet of paper is 3,2 NOK for colour prints, and 0,80 NOK for black/whiter prints. Whether the print is only on one page or two, does not affect the price.
  • It is possible for external users to print out from our library resources. Please contact the staff.
  • Most of the computers in the libraries are connected to printers.
  • Most of the printers in the libraries have card readers.
    • If you do not have a student or employee card, you can get one from the SiO card senter.
