Computers and Labs

You will find over 100 computers available for use throughout the Leatherby Libraries. Your Chapman username and password are required to use most of them. 

Copy, Print and Fax

Copy Machine

Copy machines are located throughout the Leatherby Libraries for usage by the Chapman Family. Please adhere to the following rules: 

  • Limit your copying to 10 minutes if others are waiting.
  • NO REFUNDS will be given for incorrect paper size, orientation of originals, reductions/enlargements, etc. and all other user errors.
  • Read instructions carefully. The library does not staff a key operator to assist with copying.
  • DO NOT press down on the lid when copying as you may break the glass.
  • Copy machines are shut down 15 minutes prior to closing.


The copier that is located in the 1st FL Lewis Family Lounge next to the vending machines now has faxing capabilities. 

Students, staff and faculty can now use the copier to send faxes only. Receiving faxes will no longer be available. In order to fax a Chapman University ID with an active declining balance account must be present.

There is no cost to send a fax but a declining balance of at least $0.10 is required to activate the fax feature on the copier. Unfortunately, neither cash or coin can be used to activate the fax feature.There are faxing instructions posted on the wall behind the copier. 

Questions may directed to the Circulation department at (714) 532-7723.


Printers are located in many of the Library's computer labs for usage by members of the Chapman Family with access.

Digital Microform Scanner

While other microfilm machines in the Leatherby Libraries only allow for reading and printing, the digital microform scanner allows you to create digital files from microfilm, microfiche, opaque cards, photographs, transparencies, and more!

You can save your digitization to a flash drive, burn them to a CD, email them to yourself, or print them. The scanner is easy to use and allows you to have control over brightness, contrast, sharpness, inverted images and more. In addition, the library has developed illustrated user-friendly guides for differing levels of scanning: easy (for quick viewing and printing), intermediate (for medium quality image capture), and advanced (for very high resolution, high quality images). These guides can be found in printed form immediately next to the scanner itself. This station is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Simply log in to the PC with your Chapman credentials.

Large-format Scanning PC

This PC’s scanner will scan documents up to 8 ½ by 14 inches in size (larger than most common scanners). You may save your work onto a CD, USB flash drive or email the files to yourself.

Print Photo Scanner

This unit is meant for scanning batches of print photographs. It will provide options for rotation, red-eye reduction, re-touching, and resolution. The fronts and backs of the print photo may be scanned at the same time. There is a large-format companion scanner, which may be used for over-sized or delicate photographs.
