Printing

Please see our Coronavirus/COVID-19 Page for important updates about changes to library services during the pandemic emergency. Many of the services described below have been affected or are unavailable.

You will need to set up a print account:

Add Value Station

  1. Go to the Add Value Station (AVS) located next to the downstairs print release station.
  2. Scan your student ID card.
  3. You will be prompted to enter a 4-digit PIN. You will need this PIN to release your printouts and manage your print account.
  4. Add money to your account. Black and white printouts are 10¢; color printouts are 75¢. You will be charged for both sides if doing double-sided printing or copying.

Printing from a library computer:

  1. At a library laptop or desktop computer, print using the normal print command.
  2. The default printer/destination is black and white (BW). You can also choose a color printer.
  3. Click the Print button. A pop-up window will appear and ask for your Student ID Number. Be sure to include the dash if that's how it's printed on your card.
  4. You will also have to give a name for the print job. Enter something that helps you remember what you printed.
  5. Go to the appropriate release station, scan your ID card and enter your 4-digit PIN. You will see a list of your print jobs and can print the desired documents.
