A print release station is a computer you use to finish printing documents you submitted to print via PaperCut (the printing software). For information on how to print at the Library, see the guide on Library Technology. This explains how to print from a library computer or from your laptop. It also explains how to use print release stations, pay for printing, and request refunds.

To use the print release station:

  • Send something to be printed via PaperCut.
  • Log into any Library print release station with your NetID and password. All print jobs that have not been released yet will be listed.
  • Locate the print job you would like to print and under “Action” select “Print.”
  • When you are finished select “Done” in the lower right corner to log out.
