Printing is free for students from any of our computers in the library. The color printer is only available in the Student Computer Lab. There are three printers in the Library, one black and white on the main floor, a black on white one and color in the Mezzanine, in the Student Computer Lab.

Photocopying costs $0.10 a page in black and white, $0.20 a page in color. The copy machines can take cash or GoPrint cards. The Go Print card dispenser is located in the main hallway of the Library.
