Sending a print job
When you print in either the Library Commons or in the Library, you will be asked to select a printer (3rd or 4th floor) and give your print job a name and password. This is simply to identify your print job from others, so name it whatever you want. You can use the same name and password for multiple print-jobs. If you select the 4th floor printer, it will default to black and white printing. Be sure to select 'color' if you want a color print out. Detailed directions are available at the 4th floor print station or at Circulation.
There are 2 print stations in the Library - one on the 3rd floor and one on the 4th floor outside the computer lab. Print jobs sent in the Library or Library Commons can be retrieved at either print station.
Retrieving a print job
Swipe your card on the card reader. Select your print-job name and press "Print". Enter the password you created when you sent the print job. Your print job will be distributed and your card will be charged.

The Isché Library has a small self-service scanner. It is located next to the print station on the 4th floor. All patrons with an LSUHSC userid and password are welcome to use it. Additionally the photocopiers can act as scanners if the user has a flash drive.
