New copy center opens in Woodruff Library basement
In order to provide convenient printing services to students, faculty and staff, Campus Printing has opened a new copy center on the bottom floor of Woodruff Library.
Located just behind the glass-enclosed stairwell at the rear of the building, the center is equipped with high-speed and color copiers, folders, bindery capabilities and has a full-time staff of three. The center can also take orders for printing business cards, letterhead, etc.
The Kinko's location in Emory Village is planning to move to the corner of Clairmont and North Decatur roads in January, according to Kinko's officials, and Carter said Campus Printing wanted to open the new center to provide Emory a convenient alternative. It opened Aug. 16.
"Before this center, we had no presence in the library, just a lot of walk-up machines that use EmoryCard," said Chris Carter, director of Campus Printing, which is located in the 1762 Clifton Road building. "We see this location being open longer allows us to provide better turnaround on work at a more accessible location. If somebody's working late, they can easily drop something off, pick it up and so forth."
The center is open seven days a week: 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday. Campus Printing operates two other centers, one in the School of Public Health and the other in the 1762 Building.
While Carter expects business to increase, especially after Kinko's moves to its new location, he doesn't see the new center replacing Kinko's entirely. "It's not a market we had especially been in," he said. "For instance, we don't have computers available. They have some amenities and a lot of walk-up stuff. But we expect business to grow."
