The Copy Center's first mission is to provide in-house support for Interlibrary Loan/Distance student document delivery services. It is also the pick-up and drop-off point for interlibrary loan secured books on the Pocatello campus. Interlibrary loan materials designated as in-house use only must be checked-out and returned to this counter.

Copy Center services are available to the ISU community, Pocatello and area communities and Pocatello legal communities.

Large-scale copy jobs can be submitted and should be arranged for in advance, as they may need to be staged over several days time.

Copy Center staff provides directional assistance for locating material in the collections housed on the 1st floor and will retrieve periodicals from storage (this service is available 8 am - 5 pm weekdays). Copy Center staff provides instruction and technical support to patrons using the microform readers, printers and scanner.

Library Copyright Policy

The Copy Center cannot copy the whole issue of a journal nor can it copy a complete book. It follows the following policy for photocopies:

  • Articles -- 2 per journal issue or 5 articles per journal volume
