Copy & Print

Student using copy machine

The easiest way to pay for prints or copies is with a UCard. You can add money at a UCard kiosk (located in the Knowledge Commons or by Reserve) or at > My UCard Account. If you don't have a UCard, you can pay for prints with cash or a credit card at the Reserve desk, or you can purchase a visitor card at a UCard kiosk.


You can print from any computer on Levels 1 and 2 of the Marriott Library or in the outer computer labs. Unprinted jobs are deleted after two hours. In the Knowledge Commons, you can also print on 11"x17" paper (also known as ledger or tabloid paper) if you format your document for 11"x17" printing and use the printers adjacent to the Knowledge Commons desk.

  • Black & white: With UCard, 8¢ per one-sided sheet, 14¢ per two-sided sheet. At Reserve, 8¢ per printed side.
  • Color: With UCard, 25¢ per one-sided sheet, 40¢ per two-sided sheet. At Reserve, 25¢ per printed side. Available in the Knowledge Commons and outer computer labs.

Wireless Printing

After following the instructions below, you can print by going to File > Print in any application and selecting the desired printer. Your print job will show up under the username on your computer rather than your uNID.

The Marriott Library ITS OS X Wireless Print Management Installer will automatically install Pharos Popup and add the desired print queues to your laptop.

If you prefer, you can install Pharos Popup separately and manually configure a print queue. When you are asked to enter a URL, use one of the addresses below:

  • MLib Lv2 Knowledge Commons (B&W): popup://
  • MLib Lv2 Knowledge Commons (Color): popup://
  • MLib Lv1 Stacks (B&W): popup://
  • MLib Lv2 Stacks (B&W): popup://
  • MLib Lv3 Family Reading Room (B&W): popup://
  • Union Lab Downstairs (B&W): popup://
  • Union Lab Downstairs (Color): popup://
  • Benchmark Bldg. 820 (B&W): popup://
  • Benchmark Bldg. 820 (Color): popup://
  • Marriott Honors Community (B&W): popup://

Install the print queue you'd like to access using an installer below:

Poster Printing

The HP Designjet T2300, located at the Knowledge Commons desk on Level 2, prints on matte or semigloss paper up to 42" wide. To print, bring your file to the desk as a JPEG or TIFF on a flash drive. The image should be set to your desired resolution and dimensions, with at least one side that is less than or equal to 41.6", to account for .2" margins.

Pricing: For University of Utah students, staff, and faculty, $3 per square foot. For other patrons, $5 per square foot.

Important! Do not save as a JPEG or TIFF from PowerPoint, as the image quality will be poor.
  1. Go to File > Save As. Under File Format, select PDF.
  2. Open the PDF in Adobe Photoshop and follow the instructions below to save it as a JPEG or TIFF.
  1. With the document open, go to Image > Image Size. Verify that the width, height, and resolution are correct. Click OK.
  2. Go to File > Save As. Under Format, select JPEG or TIFF. Choose a location and file name for your file and click Save. Click OK on the default save settings.

Copying & Scanning

Book scanners are available by the Reserve desk on Level 2 of the Marriott Library. From these stations, you can save to a file or print. There are various scanners available in the Knowledge Commons, including flatbed scanners, feeder scanners, and a film scanner.

Copy machines are located by the Levels 1 and 2 General Collection and accept a UCard (or visitor card). The Reserve desk is also able to copy up to 20 loose sheets.

For large scans, there is a scanner in the Fine Arts & Architecture library (Marriott Library Level 2) that scans up to 23.4" x 33.1" and is free to use. Alternatively, you can bring the document to be scanned to the Knowledge Commons desk, where we can scan a document up to 36" wide at up to 600 dpi. There is no length limitation, but it must be a loose, unbound document. There is a charge for a scan, which is waived if you pay to print the scan.

  • Standard black & white: With UCard, 8¢ per printed side.
  • Large format: For students, staff, and faculty, $3 per square foot for copies, or $3 for a scan only. For other patrons, $5 per square foot, or $5 for a scan only.
