Printing, Copying, & Scanning

Who can print, copy, and scan?

All library users, including current students, faculty, staff, alumni, visiting researchers, and the general public.

When using library computers, guests not part of UNLV or NSHE are limited to certain types of computer workstations. This limits the types of materials that can be printed directly from the internet.

To print from a personal laptop, it must be compatible with the library's wi-fi specifications.

Printing instructions

Always use "Print Preview". Then adjust the Page Setup if necessary for optimal printing. Note that printing from WebCampus can be particularly challenging.

  1. When sending a document to a library printer, you will be prompted to enter an owner name of your choice.
  2. Proceed to a print station to pay for and retrieve your prints.
  3. Activate the screen by swiping your RebelCard (or RebelCash card) with the strip facing down and towards you.
  4. Find your prints labeled with your chosen owner name and press the print button at the bottom of the screen to begin printing.
