Printing & Copying
All computers in the library can send print jobs to the two printing stations at the Reference Desk on the first floor. Check the signage near the computers to determine which station to go to. You also must know the number of the computer you used. This will be on a white label on the upper right hand corner of the monitor.Printing is 15 cents per page for black and white; 60 cents per page for color. Only Coyote OneCards and the cash value cards sold by the Cash Value machine in the library may be used to pay for printing. No other form of payment is accepted. If you have problems, ask for assistance at the Reference Desk on the first floor. If the Reference Desk is closed, the Check-Out Desk may be able to assist you.
Wireless printing is availiable on the library's Printer 3. Some set-up is required. See Wireless Printing for details.
Black-and-white photocopiers are located in PL-111A on the first floor, and on the third floor, opposite the elevators. Letter-size or legal-size copies are 15 cents each. Some machines also make ledger-size copies, which are 30 cents each. There is one color copier in the 1st floor copy room: color copies are 50 cents each.
Only Coyote OneCards and the cash value cards sold by the machine in the library may be used to pay for photocopying. No other form of payment is accepted.
The photocopiers also can scan black-and-white images onto a USB drive, however, not all USB drives are compatible. Follow the instructions posted near each machine.
If you have problems with the machines, ask for assistance at the Check-Out Desk on the first floor.
Cards & Adding Money
Putting Money on Your Card: Cash
There are two Card Value Center machines (also known as Value Ports) on the first floor that allow you to add value to your Coyote OneCard or cash value card.
The machines accept only paper money in denominations up to twenty. They do not give change. No other form of payment is accepted.
Please note that value on a Coyote OneCard may be used for other types of purchases on campus but value on a cash value card is restricted to printing or photocopying.
Putting Money on Your Card: Credit/Debit
You may add larger amounts of money (minimum $25) to your OneCard or cash value card only at the Bursar's Office, Sierra Hall 102, or the Commons main office (CO-209) during their regular business hours. Both offices accept cash, American Express, MasterCard, or VISA.
Purchasing a Cash Value Card
Only one of the Card Value Center machines, the one next to the Reference Desk, sells the cash value cards. You will need a one dollar bill. The cash value card costs 85 cents, so only 15 cents of your dollar goes towards the available balance. Add additional money to this card using either of the methods described above.
Change & Refunds
Change may be obtained on the first floor at the change machine in the Copy Machine Room (PL-111A ). The machine accepts twenties, tens, and fives and dispenses smaller bills, not coins. Sometimes the Check-Out Desk on the first floor is able to make change.
If you need an ATM, the nearest one is in the Student Union.
If you have problems with the change machine, go to the Library Administration Office (PL-2006). When the office is closed, call 537-5102 and leave a message. A staff member will call you back on the next business day.
Refunds for printing malfunctions may be obtained by:
- Filling out the small yellow refund form available at the Reference Desk and turning it in at the Reference Desk or the Check-Out Desk (takes about 2 weeks for Foundation to credit your card).
- Asking a reference librarian to print another copy using a bypass card.
- Money added to a card cannot be removed except by spending it; no cash refunds are given for unused balances.
