Pharos Printing, Copying, and Scanning
Lewis Library provides multi-function devices on each level of the Library and in eight other locations on the UNTHSC campus. Each of these units handles computer printing and photocopying jobs, as well as scanning documents and sending them to e-mail. The Pharos print management system controls these functions. A Pharos account must be created before using the equipment; see below for details.
- For a fee, Lewis Library will supply print or electronic copies of journal articles and book chapters. See the Document Delivery page for more information about this service.
- The Library also can make digital copies of other types of materials. For more information, see the Digitization Fee Schedule or contact the Digital Projects Librarian.
- Two types of Pharos accounts are available: individual and departmental.
- Accounts are created by Library personnel for all UNTHSC students, and for others upon request at the Service Desk.
- For new departmental accounts, submit a completed Interdepartmental Transfer (IDT) form (pdf).
- Accounts can be credited for any amount in one-dollar increments ($1, $2, $3, etc.).
- Payment must be made at the Library Service Desk; cash, checks, MasterCard, VISA, and Discover are accepted.
- Account issues can be resolved by Lewis Library Service Desk personnel.
- Refunds are issued only for mechanical failures and withdrawn students. See the Policy on PHAROS Copy/Print Account Refunds and Closures for more information.
- There is currently no charge for scanning to e-mail.
- To avoid default charges for printing, be sure the document size is set correctly. If a document does not match one of the standard sizes (A4, Letter (8 ½ x 11), Legal (8 ½ x 14), or Ledger (11 x 17)), it will be charged at 25 cents per side (color or black and white).
- Copies and prints are charged as follows:
|Pharos Account - Black & White|
|8.5 x 11||5 cents per side|
|8.5 X 14||5 cents per side|
|11 X 17||10 cents per side|
|Pharos Account - Color|
|8.5 x 11||25 cents per side|
|8.5 X 14||25 cents per side|
|11 X 17||50 cents per side|
These charges have been reviewed and approved by Lewis Library Administration.
