Is there a color photocopier in Widener or Lamont?

The Widener color photocopier is located in the Atkins Room on the second floor.  The cost for color copies is $0.15 for one-sided and $0.16 for two-sided pages. 

There are no color photocopiers in Lamont Library, but an alternative would be to scan in color (free) and then print to the color printer on Level B (same cost as for photocopying).

Photocopiers in both buildings take Crimson Cash

Printers in both buildings take Crimson Cash (for printing from library desktop computers) and Crimson Print (for printing from laptops).
