Student Printing

Printers are available in public computing areas and in the dorms for student use. There is no charge for printing but we ask students to refrain from printing multiple copies or wasting paper. Large print jobs for student organizations should be referred to Print Services

Working with OCR

OCR, or Optical Character Recognition, is a technology that enables you to convert different types of documents, such as scanned paper documents, PDF files or images captured by a digital camera into editable and searchable data.

See OCR Scans with Canon 3235 for more information on how to send an OCR'd PDF of a scanned document from a printer on campus.

Media Center Printing

Color and Poster printing for academic purposes is available in the Beardsley Media Center.
