Outside of contemporary art practice, the act of photocopying is by-and-large not given much consideration by general users and is only granted limited treatment within discussions of electronic media. This paper seeks to redress this, by speculating on the practice of photocopying and some of the less remarked on behaviours and 'drives' which motivate and structure this practice. It begins by sketching briefly the development of commercial photocopying technologies and some of their artistic uses. Then, drawing on various written accounts and observational research in a large public research library, it explores a number of 'pathologies' or curiosities of behaviour and motivation which attend and characterise the act of photocopying. The paper concludes by suggesting that gaining insight into these patterns and processes can contribute to a richer understanding of the practice of everyday photocopying, as well as human-machine interaction more generally.

The Charleston Conference is an informal annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials in Charleston, SC, in November, to discuss issues of importance to them all. It is designed to be a collegial gathering of individuals from different areas who discuss the same issues in a non-threatening, friendly, and highly informal environment. Presidents of companies discuss and debate with library directors, acquisitions librarians, reference librarians, serials librarians, collection development librarians, and many, many others. Begun in 1980, the Charleston Conference has grown from 20 participants in 1980 to over 1,400 in 2011. Proceedings of the conference published since 2009 are made openly accessible through the support of Purdue University Libraries, the parent organization of Purdue University Press, a unit of the Libraries.
