There are printers, photocopiers, and scanners at many U of T libraries. You can even print wirelessly from your laptop or mobile device.
You'll need to put money on your TCard to print and photocopy. It normally costs between $0.10 and $0.15 per page. Also, bring a USB key if you want to use the scanners.
We even have a 3D printer!
There are over 12 million books available through U of T Libraries. As an undergraduate student, you can borrow up to 50 items (books, DVDs) at a time for 14 days. Items can be renewed up to three times if there is not a hold on them.

Once you have your book(s), bring them to the library's circulation desk to check the book out or use one of our self-checkout machines.
Instructors often reserve textbooks or other required readings in a special section of the library called "short term loan" or "course reserves". You can check these books out for a short amount of time (usually a few hours) to read or photocopy parts of it.
Look up your course by name, code, or professor in the Course Reserves database to find out what's on reserve for your course.
