Printing, Copying, & Microfilm


There is a color multifunction printer/copier located in the Research Commons. You can pay for your copies with a Pirate Card for $.07 per bw copy. The InfoDesk will assist you if you have any problems. The SLC copier will print but not copy in color.  For color copying, please use the copiers in PRC 223, MBH 222, or CB 127.

Pirate Print

When you print something from the computers in the Research Commons of the library, it will print out in the Research Commons. Printers are on the south wall by the entrance to the periodicals area. We have both a color and two standard black and white printers for printing online documents and web pages. We also have printers located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of SLC. After you release the items to be printed, the charges accrued will be taken off your Pirate Print account. If you need assistance, please contact the InfoDesk.

Instructions on printing from a personal laptop can be found here.

Please be aware that charges to department account numbers cannot be made through Pirate Print. If you need to print items and charge them to a department account, please see the InfoDesk staff.

Poster Printer

Poster printing can now be done in the Research Commons. Printing a poster on the specialty printers requires a reservation.  Make your reservation here.

Instructions for formatting and printing a poster can be found here.

You do not need to make an appointment to print on the regular color LaserJet printer.
