Printing from a library computer
We have a nice step-by-step guide to help you through the process of printing.  Don't have your ID with you? Don't worry! It is possible to print at these locations even if you do not have your ID. Simply type in your username and password when you would normally scan your ID. 

Printing from your own computer
To print from your own device, send an email to with the document you would like to print as an attachment. You can also go to, log in with your username and password, and attach your documents to send to a printer. Find out more with this guide from the IT Helpdesk.

To print on your own paper, we recommend heading over to the Copy Center located in the Laker Marketplace.

To print single-sided, you must print from a library computer and change the print settings within the program you are printing from.
