New printing system arrives at the Health Sciences Library!

Graphic-Wireless Printing

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.

No. If you were using the Skyscape or Omnio apps to access DynaMed on your mobile device, you do not have to uninstall those apps to download/use the new DynaMed app. However, those apps will no longer be updated with the latest DynaMed content, so it is recommended that you install the new DynaMed app.
