  • Contact the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor for additional assistance. 

Print Software for Laptops

To print from your laptop to the UTprint printers, you will need the appropriate software. Please contact the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor, and they will help you download the necessary drivers for printing.

 

Alternatively, you can download the appropriate software from UTprint.

  • For Windows, look for "Windows" under the "Drivers" section. Click on "black and white" and/or "color" to download those respective drivers to your computer.
  • For Macs, look for "macOS" under the "Drivers" section. Click on "all drivers" to download the Mac print drivers to your computer.

Note: If you installed print drivers for Law School printers prior to August 2017 (for Windows laptops) or June 2017 (for Mac laptops), you must install the new drivers. The new drivers allow for you to print to any UTprint printer at the Law School and on campus.

 

Staff at the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor are available for assistance if you have any questions or problems.

Scanning

The Library has three standalone scanners available: (1) 2nd floor KIC book scanner, (2) 3rd floor KIC book scanner, and (3) 3rd floor flatbed scanner with document feeder

  • One KIC Scanner is located near the charging locker on the 2nd floor, and the other KIC Scanner is located in the computer lab area on the 3rd floor.  The KIC scanners provide for the scanning of bound documents in either color or black and white. It also offers a variety of output formats, including PDF, searchable PDF, JPEG, PNG, Rich Text/DOC, or audio. You can save your scans to a USB key, send the scans to an e-mail address, upload them to cloud storage, or even save them to a tablet or smart phone using a QR code. The KIC scanners also include an electronic user guide outlining how to scan and save images and how to navigate its settings and menus. There is no charge for use of the KIC scanners.
  • The flatbed scanner is located in a separate carrel in the computer carrels near the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor. Instructions are available for saving a scan as a PDF or Word document, which can then be emailed. The use of the flatbed scanner requires computer log-in and is limited to UT law students.

 

UTprint printers can also be used to scan documents. Place the documents in the document feeder, log in to the UTprint printer using your student ID, choose the scan function, and enter the email address you would like the scanned documents sent to. Scanning with the UTprint printers is free. The use of the UTprint printers for scanning requires computer log-in and is limited to UT law students.

Copying

Copying is available for UT law students at any UTprint machine in the library. The cost is $0.10 per page. 

Members of the public can use the UT Libraries photocopy machine on the 2nd floor of the Library. This machine does not accept cash. The copier uses the UT Libraries printing and copying system. Patrons must have a valid EID and password to use the copier. Funds can be added to the copying and printing account using a credit card.
