​Print, Scan, Copy


Library Services, in partnership with IT Solutions and Printing Services, provides printing, scanning, and copying. Help with these services is available from the Reference Desk on the first floor of Memorial Library.


Black and white MavPrint stations, our campus print system, are available on every floor of Memorial Library. A color MavPrint station is available on the first floor of Memorial Library.


Each Minnesota State Mankato student has $20 from their technology fee added to their MavPrint account per semester. This equals approximately 400 black and white printouts.
