Photocopies, scans and prints

Photocopies, scans and printouts can be made on the ground floor, 2nd floor or on the 3rd floor of the library.


You can print from your computer or mobile device and securely retrieve your jobs from a public Print In City device. For self-service printing (incl. Cloud Print), photocopying and scanning you need to create a prepayment account tied to your Estonian ID-card or Tartu/Tallinn transport card. This can be done on the website Print in City.


You can send files to print from UT Library PCs (select the print point: UTLIB-BW or UTLIB-COLOR), upload PDF files on the website Print in City or send file to e-mail Make sure to add your e-mail address to your account settings. By selecting an appropriate copying station, you can make black-and-white or coloured prints.

If you haven't made your printouts in 24 hours, your uploaded files will be deleted and the sum you have paid will be transferred back to your account.

Digital copies

All Print In City devices can be also used for scanning to email and copying.

Open the device, press the home button and follow the instructions on the device screen. For scanning, select the resolution of 100-600 dpi and for file format we suggest PDF (compact). Files can be sent to the e-mail tied to your account (Send to Myself) or some other address (New Destination). Your mailbox has to be large enough to receive large files.

For UT Library users is available Self-service scanner (located on the 2.floor). Scanner can be used for free. You can save the result either to a usb stick or to a computer next to the scanner.

Ordering digital copies

Digital copies can be requested of all publications, works of art and photos found in the open and digital collections of the UT Library. You can request the digitisation of full publications or parts of them; we also digitise your own materials. Digitisation of materials under copyright protection without the author’s agreement is allowed only if the copy is meant for private use, or for teaching or research purposes.

For requesting digital copies, fill in the request form.

Copies can be requested in jpg, pdf or tiff formats. JPG and PDF are suitable for everyday use. TIFF is used for long-time preservation of materials (e.g. detailed maps, photos, exhibition materials) and it allows further processing of the files. Zoom quality depends on the selected resolution (dpi). The original can be as large as A2 (42x59.4 cm). Larger originals (folded maps, etc.) are scanned in several different takes. On the request form, select the resolution (100-600 dpi). Materials smaller than A5 can be scanned with the resolution up to 4800 dpi.

If possible, the requests are fulfilled in three work days.

For requesting digicopies of older Publications can be used also the EOD service.
