WDL Printing and Copying Services

The Wilson Dental Library maintains both a USC Libraries Xerox printer (that can also make copies and scan documents) and a Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry departmental printer/copier. 

For more information regarding printing services at USC Libraries, please visit the USC Libraries page on printing. 

The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry provides a printer/copier for use by Ostrow affiliates only. Please note that the device is on a different network and you cannot print from library computers.  Ostrow affiliates using DesktopAnywhere will be able to print from their DesktopAnywhere session. All users with an account on the Ostrow domain should be able to use the device as a photocopier using their USCard. For more information about how to use the Ostrow printer/copier, please view this guide.


The Wilson Dental Library maintains 1 document feed scanner for patron use. USC patrons can also use the USC Libraries Xerox printer for scanning.

Power chargers and video adapters

The Wilson Dental Library’s front desk has a selection of power charges and adapters available for checkout by USC students, faculty and staff. Items circulate for three hours and can be renewed at the front desk. A $1.00 per hour fee is charged for late returns (max fine of $50.00). The fee for unreturned items is the replacement cost + $10.00 service charge.
