Printing and Copying

Both color and black & white printing are available at the Library using the Pcounter system.  The Pcounter system is also used in computer labs throughout the college.  Black and white copies are eight cents per printed side; color copies (available only in the library) are 25 cents per side. Library printers by default will print double sided, black and white. You must specifically choose any other print options when you send your print job.
