The LIDS Copier/Printer/Scanner machine is located in the 6th floor lobby. Please check with your host's support staff member for the access account code. This machine may be used by all LIDS members for professional work.  There is a charge of $0.0296 for each black/white page and $0.072 for each color page that is printed or copied (that is per-side, so printing or copying one double-sided page would cost $.06 or $0.15).  The costs will be charged to one of your advisor's or sponsor's accounts. Scanned documents do not incur any charges.


The copier on in the 6th floor lobby is available for all lab members to use for printing.  It prints double-sided black/white or color.  Follow the links below to configure your computer to use it. 

Note: you must be on either the LIDS wired network or the MIT SECURE wireless network to connect to these printers.


The photocopy machine is for research-related work by members of LIDS. (Copying for courses should be done through the appropriate Education Office for your department.) If you have any difficulties with the copy machine, please ask a staff member for assistance rather than trying to fix it yourself. For personal copying, please use CopyTech in 11-004 or in the Student Center.


The copier can scan documents to a usb device or an email address.  Email addresses for most lab members have been added to the copier's address book.  If you don't see your email address and would like to have it added, email Brian
