    The Library offers black and white printing at a cost of 10 cents per printed page.

    To print:

    1. Log-in to a computer in the Information Commons or the Information Express using your Western identity username (i.e. jdoe) and password.
    2. Follow the prompts for printing in the program you are using (i.e. Word - File - Print).
    3. When you have finished printing your desired documents, log-off from the computer.
    4. Visit the print release station in the Information Commons.
    5. Insert change or a print card (available at the Circulation Desk) to activate the print release station.
    6. Enter your Western identity username (i.e. jdoe). This should be the same username you used in step 1 above. Hit Enter twice.
    7. A list of print jobs associated with your user name will appear.
