How do the library printers work?

Each of the library computers is connected to a separate computer called a Print Release Station.

  • In Dinand Library, the Print Release Station is located next to the Main Reading Room entrance, across from the printers.
  • In the Music Library, the Print Release Station is located at the end of the study carrels closest to the front desk. 
  • In the Science Library, the Print Release Station is located next to the printers. 

When you send a file to be printed, the file goes to the Print Release Station first. This helps prevent files from accidentally printing multiple times or stacking up on the printers. It does not matter which printer you choose from the Print menu. The Print Release system will automatically send your document to the first available printer. 

After sending your file, go to the Print Release Station and enter your username. The station will show you a list of the files you have waiting to be printed.  To begin printing, click the "Print" button next to each of the files that you want. You can hit "Done" to exit the list of print jobs, or the station will automatically log you out after a few seconds.
