Fax Apps!

The library does not have fax machines available for the public to use, but there are apps available if you need to fax something!

First, scan in your document. You can do this with the scanners located in either Alcuin or Clemens Library. There are step-by-step instructions on how to scan your document attached to the scanner. If you need help, please do not hesitate to ask for a Librarian at the circulation desk.

Once your documents are scanned, navigate to one of these web apps:

Hellofax is a web-based service that allows you to send faxes and fill out and sign documents from your internet browser. New users are given five pages of faxing for free, and after that it costs $1.99 per fax (up to 10 pages, at $0.20/page after that). If you're a heavy duty faxer, you can also sign up for monthly plans which give you varying amounts of faxes each month.

If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, there is FaxZero which will allow you to send a maximum of two free faxes of three pages each a day for free! There is a catch, though. FaxZero will append a cover page with an advertisement on each fax. A $1.99 per fax payment through PayPal, though, will remove the advertisement and grant you up to fifteen pages per fax.
