Answer

Yes. You can send your print jobs via wireless to the the Campus Printing Service printers. You must log in to the service with your NID and password and then select Library Main BW. Then you must either browse on your computer to upload the file to be printed or enter the URL of the web page. Currently you cannot name the job, so it is important that you remember the name of your file/web page.

After you send the print job you can release it from any of the black & white print release stations in the library.

From the Campus Printing Service you can also select a particular printer in another campus building: BA148, CL1-101, CC1-106, CC2-104, and CC2-117. Printing charges apply.

You can also use wireless to send your print jobs to the SGA Express Lab in the Student Union.

See SGA Wireless Printing for more information.

Another option is to transfer your files to a library computer with a flash drive. Connecting to the printer network in the library requires specific configurations and security settings which are not available for non-library computers. If you save your file to a flash drive then you can open it on a library computer and print from there. If you don't have a flash drive, bring your laptop computer to the Research & Information Desk on the entrance floor where staff can loan you a flash drive to use in printing your document.
