Acceptable Use of Computing and Information Technology Resources Policy
The Health Sciences Library follows computing policy outlined by the UNLV Office of Information Technology. It is up to all users to read and understand the policy located on the OIT website.
Print, Copy & Scan
The UNLV Libraries have a pay to print model in order to sustain paper, toner and equipment. Printing at the Health Sciences Library and InfoCommons requires an ACE Account and money on a RebelCash account.
Black and white: $0.03 per page
Color: $0.40 per page
Copying requires a RebelCard and incurs the same costs as printing.
Scanning to email or USB is free.
- Scanning at InfoCommons requires a RebelCard and works similarly to copying.
- The HSL at 2040 W. Charleston Blvd. has flatbed scanners at two computer stations and requires only an ACE account for logging into the computers.
- The library will consider refunding or waiving print charges if there is an identified technological problem with the computers, printers, or printing system software. Notify the service desk staff if you feel this type of problem has occurred.
- Charges will NOT be waived for accidents such as printing multiple copies, printing in color instead of black and white, and paper orientation mistakes.
