Guide to Printing: Home

What's new for printing in 2019-2020?

1) We have introduced FREE color printing for members of our college community!

2) We now have two color printers.

3) We have moved some of our print release stations to "Printer's Row" on the north side of the main floor.  "Printer's Row" consists of three printer release stations, three black and white printers and two color/black and white printers.  We still have one black and white printer and print release station in each of the two library classrooms.

4) Our Scanning stations have moved to the north side of the main floor by "Printers Row." You will need to use your enumber and password in order to print in black and white.

4) You can now swipe your Jaypass to release your print jobs.

5) You no longer need to wait for the PaperCut print confirmation pop-up box.

5) Each of our printers is now distinguished by the name of a famous Chicago author: Here's a quick guide:
