Library Printing, Scanning, and Copying

Printers are located in the following areas of Boatwright Library:

  • Research and Collaborative Area (1st Floor) - BML1STFLPRT
  • Silent Study Area (2nd Floor) - BML2NDFLPRT
  • Basement Level 1 - BMLB1PRT
  • Parsons Music library (Modlin Center for the Arts)

A color printer is available in the Research and Collaborative Area on the first floor (BMLCOLOR1FLP). Please note that documents printed on the color printer cost 10 print credits per page. Documents printed on the other printers cost 1 credit per page.

Print Release Stations

Boatwright has print release stations near each printer. When you print to either printer you will need to stop at the print release station to finalize the print job. This will help cut down on both the waste of paper and printing credits.

Printing Credits

Students are allotted up to 400 printing credits per semester. Credits carry over from the fall semester to the spring, but not to the next academic year. See chart below for explanation:
