7 Steps to Print

Send your job.

From a library computer:
Choose File/Print from the program's main menu. Remember your computer number (LAB####, TFS####, RSRV####, etc.), which is on the monitor.

From your laptop or phone:
Email an attached document to, and pick it up from any library print station.  This works for black and white printing only.

Step 2

Go to a public print station.

Step 3

Select your computer from the print list.

Look on the printer's screen. If you've emailed the print job to, then look for your email address.

Select the print job(s).

Click "print these jobs."

Step 5

Swipe your SDSUCard or Guest Copy Card.

Click the "pay and print" button.
