Students in CUNY Start, CLIP, College Now, and Early College (Lincoln Academy and HERO) have $10 each semester.
Please note: your print/copy account will be emptied by IT at the end of each semester, so you can't carry over money from term to term.
Each black and white page costs 10 cents. Each color page costs more (15-30 cents per page).
Printing in the library defaults to printing both sides of the paper, to save you money and to conserve paper. If you prefer to print only on one side, you can choose one-sided printing from the print options menu.
You can add money to your card if you need to by using the machine on the top floor of the library, in the Reserves Room (room with the photocopiers). Please be careful when you add money, to make sure it goes into your printing account and not the cafeteria account.
