How to Print

All student computers in the library are set up to print from the library’s print system, except for laptops. Laptop users must email or save documents to an external drive, as all documents saved on the laptop are deleted when the computer is turned off.

 

Printing Cost

  • 10 cents for black and white print-outs/25 cents for color. CASH ONLY.
  • U.S. quarters, dimes, nickels (no pennies),and one-dollar bills only.
  • Circulation Desk makes change for bills over $1.00, but not over $20.00.

For best results

  • Download email attachments or Google Docs to the computer first, then open the document from the computer to print. This will keep the printers from printing extra blank pages or changing the alignment of your document.
  • Remember, not all library computers have copies of all word processing software. Save your document in Word or PDF before printing.

Campus Computer Labs

  • The campus computer labs have computers containing all software taught at the college.
  • Printing in the computer labs (511 and 2200) requires a print account, which students can get from the bookstore. Printing at the computer lab costs 5 cents per page.
