Printing & Copying
|Wireless printing is now available! You can now print to Library printers from your wireless laptop or compatible smartphone or tablet!
Printing & Copying
- Self-service printing and copying in the Library uses Imprints' IACCESS system.
- There is no ACMS printing in the Library buildings. If you have funds in your ACMS printing account, you can use those funds at other ACMS computer labs where printing is available.
- For UCSD students, staff and faculty, your UCSD ID card is your printing/photocopying card. Swipe your card in the reader at each printer or copier, enter your PIN (the default is 1111) and print or copy your job. The rate you pay is determined by the type of card you use: if you buy a guest card, you will pay the guest rate.
- Medical Center staff with hospital ID cards can obtain a UCSD-rate copy card at the Biomedical Library building or at the Imprints window in Geisel.
Printing from Library Computers
