In an effort to streamline our overall printing process, we will be utilizing a new print management system. Here’s what you need to know.
This affects everyone that prints at the Library.
The new printing system (Pharos) will replace our old printing system (GoPrint).
The process will start this week and will be entirely implemented by August 14.
Actions to Take
If you’ve printed at the Library in the past using a print card, you will need to deplete the balance on that card by August 14. It costs $0.08 to print out one black/white page with the print card. We will not issue refunds for leftover funds and the card will no longer work after August 14. Please spread the word to your colleagues and students.
*Additional information about the new system and how it works will be released in the coming weeks.

It’s that time again! Course Reserves are a great way to provide students with priority access to an item that belongs to either you or the Library. You can specify if you’d like the item to have a same-day loan period (3 hours) or a 3-day loan period.
