Printing, Copying, & Scanning in the Libraries


Print Anywhere:  Starting February 18, 2013, the Print Anywhere program will charge for copy, print and scan use. To use Print Anywhere you need to first Fund Your Account Online.

Library users will have the ability to print to any one of nearly 70 devices on all four campuses (including all ASU Libraries locations) with just one simple click.

The Print Anywhere program will require the creation of a print account, which can be funded online by debit/credit card (minimum $12 deposit) or in person by debit/credit card or cash, at PrintU in the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus.  Please see the staff at the Information Desk at any library location for assistance with this process.

To find out more about this program, including how to fund your print account, visit the Print Anywhere web page.

Computer Workstation Printing

When printing from computer workstations in the libraries the computer will automatically associate the print job with the ASURITE account that was used to log in to the workstation. PC Reservation computers will prompt you to enter a username.

When printing documents from MyASU, right click on the links to the documents and choose "Open in New Window". Then click on the printer icon in the new window.

Most of the copy/print stations in the ASU Libraries are black/white only with a cost of $0.12/page for black/white printing.  Hayden Library, Noble Library and the Downtown Phoenix campus Library offer color copying and printing at a cost of $0.50/page.  Scanning, where available, costs $0.02/page.
