The Map and Government Information Library (MAGIL) provides large-format printing and scanning services to UGA students, faculty, and staff, as well as the general public.


Complimentary large-format scanning of materials from the UGA Libraries’ collection is available for UGA students, faculty, and staff for educational/research-related projects, course assignments, or presentations. For all other scan requests there is a flat fee of $10.00 per scan, which applies to non-UGA patrons as well as UGA patrons with non-educational requests.

The large-format scanner is a sheet-fed scanner and can accommodate materials up to 54 inches.


Large-format printing of items in the UGA Libraries collection is available at $0.01 (1 cent) per square inch. The cost per sheet = length of original in inches x width of original in inches x .01 plus any applicable sales tax.

  • Exceptions:

    • All USGS topographic quadrangles (7.5', 15', 30', and specials) - $6 per sheet
    • All Sanborn Fire Insurance maps - $6 per sheet
