The following printers are available in the library:

Personal laptops can connect with campus printers through iPrint. Staff at the Tech Desk can assist with setting up personal computers to print.

Students are initially assigned 500 units for printing. If you exceed the limit, you will need to have a Tech Desk worker add printing units to your account. There is no additional charge for adding more printing units to your account.

Reporting Problems

If you have problems with any equipment, or if any equipment was missing from the bag when you picked up the item, please let us know! We want to make sure the equipment works for you.

Please test the equipment in the library to make sure you know how to operate it and that all equipment is working.


Your Responsibilities

You are financially responsible for these items while they are checked out. Overdue fines are substantial and are applied if the items are 5 minutes late. Many of these items are quite expensive, so please treat them gently.

You are responsible for returning the items on time. Because of our limited supply, someone else may be counting on using it right after you are done.

Microfilm Reader

Lindell Library has a digital microform reader that can read microfilm and microfiche in the Learning Commons. The digital reader has accompanying software that allows you to change focus, print, save, or email images.
