Printing and Scanning

Printing using PawPrint (requires a UNI)

The Gottesman Libraries offers the same PawPrint printing service that is available across the Columbia University campus. TC students get 20 free pages of printing per week on this system. For additional pages, the cost is 10 cents/sheet (US Letter, B&W only). Students can upgrade their weekly quota to 100 pages/week for the semester for $35 by following the instructions here.

You can print to PawPrint from any library iMac:

  • Click "Print" or otherwise open print dialog as normal.
  • Select "PawPrint-Printing" from the dropdown.
  • Enter your UNI (WARNING: there is no error checking here - double check that your UNI is correct).
  • Go to your nearest PawPrint station and follow the instructions on the screen. Gottesman Libraries' stations print US Letter, B&W only.
