Library FAQ

Answers to frequently asked questions about the L. Mendel Rivers Library

How do I pay for printing or copying at the library?

CSU Students who are currently enrolled in classes can log in to print from any computer in the library or at the copier with their CSU ID number and PIN. Cost of printing is $0.05/page for black and white, and $0.25/page for color.

Anyone not enrolled in classes must ask for help with printing or copying at the reference desk on the main floor of the library. Cost is $0.10/page for black and white, and $0.25 for color.


Where can I print in color?

The color printer is located on the main floor of the library. When printing a document, select the printer named LIBCOLOR from the dropdown list. CSU students will have 25 cents deducted from their print account for each page printed. Visitors should stop by the Questions Desk for help with color printing.


Can I print from my laptop?

While you can't print directly from your laptop, you do have two options..

1) Email the document to yourself and then print the document from a library computer on the main level or the BILT Center.

2) Save your document to a USB flash drive, and then insert the drive into a library computer on the main level or the BILT Center and print your document.



Does the library have a scanner?

We have a flatbed digital scanner workstation on the main level, which may be used free of charge to make digital copies.
