Print Instructions

  • When you are ready to print, select a printer in the print window on your workstation. You have several print destinations in the Howard-Tilton Library to choose from.
  • At the Print Station, run your card through the card reader. Use the mouse to retrieve your print job(s) and select "Print" to print. That's it. The system tells you how much each print job will cost and how much value is left on your card.
