The library does not offer production services, but there are many units on campus that do:

The Espresso Book Machine in the Illini Union Bookstore allows people to print books on demand from a variety of sources. These sources include Google Books, the Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg, and others. There are almost 5 million titles available. The machine can also print self-published materials.

Document Services is available for University of Illinois patrons who need complex printing, copying, and production services.

There are also a number of Makerspaces and other specialized labs around campus and in the local community which offer 3D printing, including the Fab Lab, the Illinois MakerLab, the Urbana Free Library, Parkland Community College, the School of Art and Design, and the Research Park.
