Copy & Print

Student using copy machine

The easiest way to pay for prints or copies is with a UCard. Use cash or a credit card to add money to your UCard at a deposit machine located in the Knowledge Commons or by Reserve. Print and copy issues can be referred to the Knowledge Commons desk.

Printing

You can print from any computer on Levels 1 and 2 of the Marriott Library or in the outer computer labs. If you don't have a UCard, you can pay for prints with cash or a credit card at the Reserve desk. Unprinted jobs are deleted after two hours.

  • Black and white: With UCard, 8¢ per single-sided sheet, 14¢ per double-sided sheet. At Reserve, 8¢ per printed side.
  • Color: 50¢ per printed side. Available in the Knowledge Commons and outer computer labs.
  • Poster printing: For students, staff, and faculty, $3 per square foot. For other patrons, $5 per square foot.

Wireless Printing

After following the instructions below, you can print by going to File > Print in any application and selecting the desired printer. To release your print job, slide your UCard at the appropriate print release station. Your print job will show up under the username on your computer rather than your uNID. An alternative to these instructions is to upload a PDF to print.

The Marriott Library ITS OS X Wireless Print Management Installer will automatically install Pharos Popup and add the desired print queues to your laptop.

If you prefer, you can install Pharos Popup separately and manually configure a print queue. When you are asked to enter a URL, use one of the addresses below:

Install printers on Linux by configuring them through the CUPS (Common Unix Printing Service) web interface. Open a web browser and navigate to http://localhost:631/. Log in as an administrator and add a new printer. Choose "LPD/LPR Host or Printer" and enter the URL for the printer you wish to install (choose from the list below). Note the driver required for each printer, as CUPS will display a list of drivers to choose from.

Poster Printing

The HP Designjet T2300, located at the Student Computing Services (SCS) desk on Level 2, prints on semigloss paper up to 42" wide. To print, bring your file to the SCS desk as a JPEG or TIFF on a flash drive. The image should be set to your desired resolution and dimensions, with at least one side that is less than or equal to 41.6", to account for .2" margins.

  1. Go to the Design tab > Page Setup (Windows) or the File menu > Page Setup (OS X) to set the width and height of your poster.
  2. If necessary, resize your document to fit the page.
  3. Go to File > Save As. Under Save as type (Windows) or Format (OS X), select PDF.
  4. Open the PDF in Adobe Photoshop and follow the instructions below to save it as a JPEG or TIFF.
  1. With the document open, go to Image > Image Size. Verify that the width, height, and resolution are correct. Click OK.
  2. Go to File > Save As. Under Format, select JPEG or TIFF. Choose a location and file name for your file and click Save. Click OK on the default save settings.

Copying

Self-service copiers are located on Levels 1 and 2 of the Marriott Library. If you don't have a UCard, two copiers by Reserve accept cash.

For large format copies or scans, bring the document to be scanned to the SCS desk. The T2300 can copy a document up to 36" wide at up to 600 dpi. There is no length limitation, but it must be a loose, unbound document. You can save a copied document to your flash drive as a TIFF, JPEG, or PDF file.

  • Black and white: With UCard, 8¢ per printed side. With cash, 10¢ per printed side
  • Large format: For students, staff, and faculty, $3 per square foot (or $3 for a scan only). For other patrons, $5 per square foot (or $5 for a scan only).
