Irwin Library Fax Policy
- The fax machine is only for CURRENT Butler
Students, staff, and faculty to send
faxes. Verification: Patrons will need to
show their ID card or be looked up in the WMS system.
- Patrons are REQUIRED TO WAIT for their fax to be
processed. Due to privacy concerns we cannot allow patrons to leave
a fax and come back for it later.
- We do not charge for any faxes. This includes long
distance or international faxes.
- A confirmation page will print out at the end of the fax and
can be given to the patron.
- The number of pages sent in one request and the number of fax
numbers sent to are subject to staff discretion (i.e., desk
staffing, pending assignments, etc). A good rule of thumb is
one large mutli-page fax (10+ pages) to any
one fax number or a small fax (approximately five
pages) to no more than five different fax
