We’re excited to reveal a new self-serve print system in the library. Users will be able to pay for print and copy jobs via credit card right at the printer locations. Prices will remain the same, at .10/page for black and white and .25/page for color.
Wireless printing will also be available and better than ever. You’ll be able to send jobs to our library printers from anywhere and pick them up when it’s convenient for you! Print jobs will remain available for up to 24 hours. There are multiple ways to print:
from workstations in the library,
from your own laptop (via wireless),
email files as an attachment, or
direct uploads to the PrintMe cloud.
Enjoy fast and easy print job retrieval at any of the print/copy release stations in the library. Simply scan the barcode for the job from your mobile device or key in in the document ID number. You can also print files directly from a USB drive or from cloud storage location. View a print and cost preview prior to printing, with the ability to change print options such as number of copies, pages to print, color printing, and more!
As part of this change, the library will be converting to a new card system for cash customers. The old copy cards issued by the library will be going away. As soon as possible, please use up any credit you have on old cards. A new card dispensing machine will be located on first floor. This machine will accept cash only (no coins), and will replace all cash services at the library’s Service Desk.
Note: the older black and white student printer system that is used through accounts administered by the campus bookstore is still in place.
Questions? Comments? Stop in at our Service Desk, or pick up the how-to handout at our printing locations.

GraphPad Prism, available for both Windows and Mac computers, combines scientific graphing, comprehensive curve fitting (nonlinear regression), understandable statistics, and data organization.
GraphPad Prism was originally designed for experimental biologists in medical schools and drug companies, especially those in pharmacology and physiology. Prism is now used much more broadly by all kinds of biologists, as well as social and physical scientists. More than 200,000 scientists in over 110 countries rely on Prism to analyze, graph and present their scientific data.
A reminder: the library’s four Statistics Workstations (and two iMacs) are located in the library’s North Information Commons, and are limited to affiliated users.
The library is pleased to announce placement of two new iMacs in the library’s 1st floor Information Commons computing area for use by UC Denver students, faculty and staff. The iMacs feature El Capitan OS X and Microsoft Office 2016.
If using the iMacs, remember to reboot when you are done. Be sure save your work to your own USB drive or email it to yourself as the computers do not retain any user information or data once the machines are rebooted.
SAS 9.4, the well-known statistics package is now available on five Health Sciences Library workstations. SAS joins the list of stats software now available in the library, which includes JMP, SPSS, R Studio, and Atlas.TI. SAS is available on four dedicated workstations in the library’s first floor Information Commons.
These four new workstations are located in the library’s North Information Commons, stations P27-P30. They are dedicated for either statistical or VH Dissector purposes (VH Dissector is an anatomy study program based on the Visible Human). The new workstations have Core™ i7 processors and solid state hard drives – performance is excellent! Please note, the workstations are designated for statistics or VH Dissector use, and individuals who are not using these applications may be bumped.
SAS is also available on a fifth “virtual” workstation, which can be accessed from multiple locations (which include all thin clients on the 1st floor as well as thin clients in the library’s 2nd floor Quiet Computing Lab).
Excited about SAS? Wish the library had other types of software? Are you an expert in using SPSS, R, or SAS, and willing to give us feedback on our software setup? Please let us know!
