Printing from 3rd floor student computer lab:

Computers located on carrels next to the Tarlton Tech Desk (JON 3.220) and in the computer classroom (JON 3.222/3.223) print to the UTprint printers. (Print outs may be picked up from any UTprint printer on campus.) As before, a BevoBucks account is required.

All printers print to 8 ½″ x 11″ paper only. The charge for black and white printing is $0.10 per page; double-sided/duplex printing (printing a single sheet on both sides) costs $0.20 per page for black and white printing. There is a color printer located next to the Tarlton Tech Desk. Select the UTprint Color option from the screen pop-up. The charge for color printing is $0.40 per single-sided page and $0.80 for double-sided pages.

(There are a limited number of computers on the Library's 2nd floor for public use. Printing from these public terminals is by copy card only at $0.10/page to a nearby print station. When you click print, there is a sequence of two pop-ups--keep the default print option of non-PCL and then name the document for retrieval.)

Printing with UTprint

  • To print to the color printer, select that option from the print software pop-up. The color printer is located next to the Tarlton Tech Desk.

  • Request assistance at the Tarlton Tech Desk if you feel your print job is of unacceptable condition. Refund requests may be submitted online.

 

Missing a print job? Here are some tips for finding it:

  • Check your BevoBucks account: it will tell you if your print job went through and if your account was actually charged. You will only be charged for the print jobs you release.
  • Pending print jobs remain in the the system for 48 hours before being deleted.
  • Contact the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor for additional assistance. 

Print Software for Laptops

To print from your laptop, download the appropriate software from UTprint

  • For Windows, look for ‘Windows Drivers (updated 10 Jan 2017)’. Select, download, and install  ‘B&W’ and/or ‘Color’ drivers to your computer.
  • For Macs, look for ‘MacOS Drivers (updated 10 Jan 2017)’. Select, download, and install  ‘B&W+Color’ drivers to your computer.

Note: If you installed print drivers for Law School printers prior to January 2017, 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

scanner

The library has three scanners for public use: (1) a KIC scanner, (2) an e-Scan™ book scanner, and (3) a Fujitsu document feeder scanner

  • The KIC Scanner kiosk is located near the photocopier on the 2nd floor. The KIC scanner kiosk provides 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 scanner kiosk also includes 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 scanner. 
  • The e-scan™ book scanner kiosk is located in a carrel near the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor. The e-scan™ book scanner kiosk is designed for scanning any bound document into PDF, JPG, or TIFF formats. Output may be sent to your e-mail account as a file attachment or saved to a USB key. There is no charge for use of the e-scan™. 
  • The Fujitsu document feeder scanner is located in a separate carrel together with an iMac in the computer carrels near the Tarlton Tech Desk on the 3rd floor. OCR software is installed on the iMac connected to the Fujitsu document feeder scanner so the scanned documents can have full text searching. Instructions are available for saving a scan as a PDF or Word document, which can then be emailed.
