Printing, Copying, and Scanning
Students can use their print credits to print from library computers, laptops, and even a phone or a tablet.
Printing in black and white uses 5 print credits per page. Printing in color use 25 print credits per page.
Printing from a library computer
Students submit their document for printing from a library computer, and log in to Papercut when prompted using their Net-ID and password.
Guests can print a limited number of pages for free from guest computers only. Ask for login information at our Main Desk in Parks Library.
Printing from a personal device
Students using a personal device can use PaperCut Mobility Print to send jobs to networked printers in Parks Library or other campus facilities.
Before printing, look at the printer you expect to print to for a label starting with 'Library-0' or LIBRARY-FindMe. Library-0 printers will start printing when you click “Print”, but FindMe documents are only printed after you go to the printer and login. Choose the matching label in Papercut when asked which printer you want to print to.
Using FindMe printers
Starting Spring 2023 Semester, students can use a simpler, more secure method of printing. Print to either LIBRARY-FindMe-bw or LIBRARY-FindMe-color printers from any library computer or personal device using PaperCut Mobility Print .
To print your documents, go to a FindMe printer and login either by tapping your ISU Card on the reader or manually using your email address and password on the touchscreen.
All of your queued documents should immediately begin printing after you login.
Hold your ISU Card next to this symbol on the printer to login.
You have up to 2 hours from when you submit your document to print it. Your document print job will be cancelled automatically if you don’t login to the FindMe printer to complete the printing. Print units are charged each time you print a document.
