Printing

Fee-based laser printing is available in all ISU Library facilities, via the campus-wide PaperCut system. Print jobs can be routed to either a networked laser printer or a networked photocopier. The general public may use a networked photocopier and pay with cash.

Printing to a networked laser printer

If you send your print job to a networked laser printer, the only payment option is to charge the costs to your university print subsidy (if applicable) or your University Bill. Charges are 5 cents per page for black & white, and 25 cents per page for color (when available). Currently, there are networked laser printers for black & white printing in the following locations:

  • Parks Library, Lower Level: Media Center
  • Parks Library, Lower Level: Computer Lab in Room 32
  • Parks Library, Floor 1: Main lobby
  • Parks Library, Floor 1: Room 199
  • Parks Library, Floor 1: Learning Connections Center (north of the glass wall)
  • Parks Library, Floor 2: PC cluster (north of the glass wall)
  • Parks Library, Floor 3: PC cluster (north of the glass wall)
  • Parks Library, Floor 4: Inside the Special Collections Reading Room
  • Design Reading Room
  • Veterinary Medical Library

The Parks Library's only networked color laser printer is in the Learning Connections Center (Floor 1, Parks Library).

Printing to a networked photocopier

If you wish to pay for laser printing with cash (coin or bill) or ISUCard (personal or departmental), you can send your print job to a networked photocopier. Charges are 20 cents per page for black & white (effective October 1, 2008). This option is currently available in the following locations:

  • Parks Library: All public PCs (on all floors and tiers) are networked to a single black-and-white photocopier in the Learning Connections Center on Floor 1.

For detailed instructions, see the handout entitled Copying and Printing to the LCC Networked Photocopier using Cash, CyCash or PaperCut
