21.1 General Purpose

The university provides its departments and related units with services to meet official printing and photocopying needs. This service is provided by the Printing Services division of Printing and Mailing Services, which administers university printing through its own facilities and by securing services off campus as needed.

Printing Services ensures that printing done outside the university be subcontracted on the basis of competitive bids. Thus, all printing and printing-related work, including photocopying, is done on order from Printing Services. Printing Services also provides consultation about departmental needs for copying equipment and oversees the leasing and purchasing of such equipment.

The Copy Centers system, with satellites throughout the campus, is part of Printing and Mailing Services. This service, like other printing-related services, is available to faculty, staff, and students for projects related to university business and course work.
