Printing for GC Account Holders:
Once you send a print job to the printer, visit and use the print-release station to release and pick up the print job. Additional printers are on the Concourse level computer lab and in department labs. Color printing is available in the Mac Media Lab on the Concourse level. Report printer problems to the IT Help Desk on the Library Concourse level, 212-817-7300 or email@example.com.
Printing for Guests:
Visitors to the GC Library have two ways to print. Both methods cost $0.15 per page and require a copy/print card, which can be purchased from a card vending machine near the Circulation or Reference Desk. Buy the card with a $1 bill, then re-insert the card to add more value. Cards are reusable but not transferrable to other libraries.
