Printing Policy

While working in Huie Library, students may print to a black and white laser printer from any student computer terminal. The library uses a print management software to manage student printing account balances.

Student Balances

A balance of 400 pages ($20.00) is added to each student account per semester: Fall, Spring, Summer. Students may also save 50% on print jobs by choosing to print on both sides of the paper (Please note that duplex printing is only available on the printers on the 1st floor of the library). Printing in the library does not affect balances at other locations on campus.

Purchasing Additional Prints

Students may add prints to their account by purchasing page credits at the Circulation Desk.

Color Printing

Color Printing is available at the Reference Desk for $0.50 a page. Students will need to bring their file(s) to the Reference Desk on a flash drive and will need to pay in cash.


There are a few restrictions or limits on student accounts that may automatically cancel a print job. These restrictions include:

  • Students may print up to 50 pages at a time. Divide larger jobs into 50 page or less increments.
  • Students may print up to 10 copies of a document at a time.
  • Students must wait 30 seconds between print commands in order to prevent inadvertent double prints.

Community Printing

Community patrons may also print from the four community terminals. Black and white print jobs cost $0.05 per page and may be paid for and picked up at the Circulation Desk. Community patrons may also purchase color prints for $0.50 by bringing their files on a flash drive to the Reference Desk.
