Library Information

Choose the right printer!

If you're in a lab, or another building, your profile might have a different printer set as the default. For most programs, after selecting "Print" you can select a printer from a drop-down menu.

Can't find a printer?

If you can't see any library printers, look on the desktop for an icon that says "Add Library Printers" to try to re-add them.  If you don't see that icon, or if you're still having printing issues, ask the reference librarian for help.

Scan instead of copy!

Remember: scanning is free. You can scan files, papers, and book chapters directly to your e-mail, share scans among group members, and more!

LibBlack (1st Floor) or LibUp (2nd Floor); FollowMe

See circulation desk with help printing flyers, brochures or using special paper types.


Print Quota

Students are allotted $10.00 in Print Quota per semester. Should you run out, you can add print quota at the reference desk. You can either pay with cash or check (only) in the library or pay using a card at the business office and bring the receipt to the reference desk to get that quota added. It is important to note that if you pay in the business office your quota will not be added unless and until you bring the receipt to the library to be added.

Scanning is free to everyone. The scanner in the Learning Café will scan color or B&W and you can then email the resulting file to yourself. It will scan all materials, as long as they fit on the glass. Scans can be output in PDF, JPEG, or TIFF. There are instructions next to the scanner if you want to try it yourself, but feel free to ask for assistance at the circulation desk.

The library has one copier. Students can make copies using their print quota for 3¢ per page of black and white copy or 10¢ per page of color copy. Public patrons will need to inquire at the circulation desk for copying assistance.

The library operates a fax machine from its Circulation Desk that can be used for both the transmission and receipt of documents.

The library fax number is (252) 399-6571.

There is no charge to receive faxes, however we do charge to transmit them. The charges are as follows:

  • Domestic (Within United States): $2.00 for the first 1-5 pages, $1.00 for every additional 1-5 pages.
  • International: $4.00 for the first 1-5 pages, $2.00 for every additional 1-5 pages.
  • Faxes within Wilson County and to 800 numbers: Free.

If you plan to receive a fax, please ask the sender to include your name, and a phone number or email address where you can be reached, on the cover sheet. This will enable us to contact you in a timely manner when a fax is received.

After notification to the recipient that a fax has been received, incoming faxes are placed in a basket at the circulation desk for pickup.
