How do I print in the library?

There are three printers in the library. One has a photocopier and scanner that you may use.

The black & white printer closest to the main door is called Library-Scan-Copy-Print.

The photocopier on this printer is good for small jobs (when you don’t have to print 20 copies) or single pages. It can do double-sided copies, but you will probably need to ask a library staffer to learn how. We have it so you can photocopy pages from books and encyclopedias when you only need a few pages (your backpack will be much lighter!).

The scanner can be used to create color copies of artwork or photos or to create digital documents that can then be read aloud by the computer or converted into text for inclusion in your anthology. Let us show you how!

The printer next to it is called ta-color-printer. Please try to use the black-and-white printer for papers and use the color printer only when you need color. The pages cost about 12 cents each to print. That can really add up!

The other black-and-white printer is in the Lab. It is called– you guessed it!– labprinter.

You can find out how to set these printers up on your own laptops from the TA tech department
