All of the computer work stations are connected to a nearby printer. All the printers, except two in the front lab, print only in black & white. The two color printers in the library are in the front lab in the Library. See below for printing tips.

Note: NO WIRELESS PRINTING We are not set up to connect your personal computer to a printer or scanner. Printing and scanning can only be done from the desktop computers set-up in the library.


At the beginning of each semester students have a 30 dollar printing balance. When those funds are exhausted students may add money to their account through Spartan Web by choosing the following links:

  1. Campus Life -->
  2. Information Technology -->
  3. Lab Printing -->
  4. Buying Pages and the "Print Release Station"

Log in with your Spartans Domain username and password. You will then have the option to add money to your printing balance using either a credit/debit card or a PayPal account.


To address printing errors and printing charge reimbursement follow the same steps as above to locate and fill out an electronic dispute form.


The library has several copiers, including a color copier, in the corner beyond the Circulation Desk. Black and White copies are 10 cents per page and color copies are 45 cents per page. The library also has a change machine for your convenience.


There is also the option of purchasing a reusable copy card. This card has a one-time cost of 1 dollar which includes an initial balance of 65 cents.


There is one BookScan Station next to the Reference Desk and one scanner connected with a computer nearby. Two printers in the front lab have scanning capabilities.


The library does not have a FAX machine. There is a FAX machine available for student use at the campus Bookstore located in the Vaughn Center.

Printing Tips

How do I print single or double sided pages?

Under File in the Print Menu under Settings there is the option to “Print One Sided” or “Print on Both Sides.”

How do I get my PowerPoint to print 3 (or 6) slides to a page?

Under File in the Print Menu under Settings there is the tab “Print All Slides” which allows you to choose how many slides (1-9) will be printed per page. You can also choose to print an entire PowerPoint presentation or pick specific slides.

How do I NOT print a dark background when I print my PowerPoint handout?

In order to NOT print the colored backgrounds on your slides, select “Pure Black and White” in the last tab which is defaulted to “Color.”
