Printing Policy for Guests in Greenley Library

Guests may be logged in at student computers, as space allows, after showing photo ID at the Reference Desk. Guests will NOT be permitted to print on any student computers. If a guest needs to print a small number of pages related to admissions, enrollment, registration, financial aid, or other college-related business, they may ask a Reference Librarian to print for them as a courtesy.

Poster Printing

Greenley Library also hosts a Poster Printing Lab with separate fees and policies.
