Scan, copy and print


Due to the international coronavirus situation, Leiden University Libraries has had to adjust its services. 


Please find an up-to-date overview of our current range of services on our webpage on library services during the coronavirus situation


Your LU-Card: both library card and printcard

Scanners, copiers and printers can be found throughout the Leiden University Libraries' locations.

Your LU-Card doubles as print and copycard. The balance to your account can be topped up either at one of the 'PinPoint' machines within the university buildings in Leiden and in The Hague, or online using Webprint.


Leiden University Students and staff can use most of the university's copy machines to scan directly to their email address. Visitors can scan to a USB stick only.

The university library (UB) has a flatbed scanner on the first floor next to the group rooms. Leiden University Students and staff can save scans to their account. Visitors with a guest account have no account storage space; please bring your own USB-stick to save scans to.

Special Collections

Most documents from the Special Collections can be digitised and reused for research or publication.

At the Reading Room Special Collections in the the UB, reading room material and material for which permission was granted by our staff, may be scanned to a pen drive / USB using the reading room's book scanner. Please bring your own device.
