Computers in the Library print to the EaglePrint stations.   Black and white printers are located on both levels near the computers, and a color printer is located on the Plaza Level in the copy area. Print jobs may be released at any EaglePrint station on campus. To pay for prints, current faculty, staff, or students can use their EmoryCard; alumni, affiliates or visitors must use an Emory guest copy card which may be purchased at the Library Information Desk. When sending a job, you must identify the job with your Emory NetID and then assign a name to the document to be printed; those who use a guest copy card will identify with the number printed on the front of the card.  At the print station, swipe your Emory card to view your available print jobs.

Additional information about printing is available at Emory's EaglePrint website.
