Printing

There are two options for printing in the law library: printing to the library photocopiers, which requires adding funds to your Photocopy Account, or printing to the campus printers, for which you will be billed by William & Mary.

“Follow-You” Printing on the Library Photocopiers

The law library has a print server that W&M students may install on their laptops, which allows printing to the library photocopiers. Printing to the copiers costs 7¢ per page single-sided, or 5¢ per side for double-sided. Color printing is 10¢ per side, single- or double-sided. Jobs sent to the library print server can be retrieved from any library copier and require a Wolf Law Library Photocopy Account. Students can deposit funds in their Photocopy Account at the Circulation Desk (cash, check, or W&M Express accepted). Public patrons may obtain a visitor account card from the front desk, which works at the public computers located behind the Reference Desk, and pay with cash or check.

If you are billing printing or copying as a faculty Research Assistant, or are authorized to bill printing or copying for a student organization, you must use the library photocopiers in order for the pages to be billed to the law school. Printing authorizations are set up at the Circulation Desk.

Printing to the Campus Printers

The law library has four sets of campus-maintained, network printers that W&M law students may print to from library computers, or install on their laptops. Campus printing costs 7¢ per page single-sided (and a side for double-sided). Students will be billed for campus printing by the Bursar's Office. Campus printers are located on all three floors of the law library.

Detailed instructions are available on the handout shelves in the library lobby. If you have printing problems, please visit campus Information Technology's printing page, or call the W&M Technology Support Center at 221-HELP.
