Printing, Copying & Scanning

Printing, Copying & Scanning

The library has two multi-function printers, capable of printing, photocopying and scanning. These are located on the first floor of the McGraw-Page Library across from the Information Desk, and are available during regular library hours. There is also a black & white only HP LaserJet printer located in the Werner Pavilion (24/7 space).

Costs

Printing, copying, and scanning to USB or email are free to all members of the R-MC community. We use a cloud-based print management system called PaperCut to reduce waste and protect user privacy. Because of that, print jobs must be released from the printers.

Color and double-sided options must be chosen from the computer's printing preferences before sending the print job to the printers. All library computers default to black & white, double-sided printing.

 

Printing

Users can print from any library computer or from their personal laptop, iPhone, or android device. 

To print from a library computer, users must log onto a computer using their own account (if you sit down at a computer that is already logged in, please logout and login as yourself). Send the print job to the Library Printing on Pay4Print queue. This will allow you to release the print job at any of the three printers located in the Library.

The print job is held in a queue until it is released from one of the printers. Printing is managed used a cloud-based system called PaperCut. 

To print from a personal device, you need to install or activate Mobility Print.

  1. Navigate to Mobility PrintThis site is only accessible on the R-MC network (on-campus or through VPN).
  2. Follow the steps on the screen to install Mobility Print on either a PC or Mac laptop. Note: Printing from smartphones and other personal devices is still being tested.
  3. Print your job to one of the 3 Library printers per the steps above and release the job from the printer you selected.

Scanning

Scanning can be done on the multi-purpose printer/copier/scanner machines located across from the Information Desk on the first floor of the Library. Instructions on how to scan items are available on the printers. Scanned items can either be emailed from the machines to any email address or saved to a user-provided USB drive.

There is also an open book scanner located on the far side of the main stairs. Instructions for using that machine are located next to it. Please ask library staff if you need assistance!
