Printing from Library Computers

  • Current CSU students have a print account which uses your MyCSU username and PIN. For problems with your print account, contact Mr. Shannon Phillips 843-863-7035 sphillip@csuniv.edu . Faculty and staff should contact Dr. Patty Hambrick for a username and password.

  • Each student's print account is given an amount of money each academic year which can be used for printing in the library or the campus computer labs. To add additional money to your print account, print cards may be purchased for $5.00 in the bookstore Mon-Thu 7:45-5:30, Fri 7:45-3:00. If you run out of money on your print account when the bookstore is closed, you will not be able to print. To see the current balance on your account or a history of all files you have printed, simply login to your print account from any library computer.

  • If you are not registered for classes for the current semester, you will not be able to use your print account and are considered a non-student. Any remaining balance on your print account will carry over to the next semester for which you register for classes.

  • Non-students must pay in cash and may print only when a librarian is on duty at the Reference Desk on the first floor, Mon-Thu 7:45am-10pm, Fri 7:45am-5pm, Sat 1-5pm, Sun 3-8pm. Instead of printing, non-students may prefer to email the file to yourself or save it to your USB drive. While most library electronic resources have an email option, verify that the actual article was emailed to you before you leave the library. If it only emails a link to the article, you can instead save the file to the library computer and then email that file to yourself.

  • Black and white printing is 5 cents per page for students, 10 cents per page for non-students. Color printing is 25 cents per page for everyone.




Printing from Laptop or Personal Computers

  • Save files to a USB drive or email them to yourself, then open them using one of the library's computers and print using the campus print management system. USB drives may be borrowed from the library Reference Desk on the first floor.




Scan and Print

  • A flatbed scanner is attached to a computer in the library lobby on the first floor. If students have money on their print account, you may choose to use the scanner instead of the photocopier. Press the COPY button on the top of the scanner, select the color or black and white printer, login to your print account, and the copy will be sent to the library printer. Photocopiers are available if you prefer to pay cash.

  • The scanner may also be used to save a digital copy without printing. OCR software is avaialble to create an editable file (e.g. .doc, .rtf, or .txt format), or the image may be saved as a non-editable file (e.g. .jpg format) or as a PDF file. There is no charge for the scanner unless the file is printed.
