Network Access

  • The library has a new printing system, UIW Print, that allow you to print, scan and copy.  This service is available to current students, faculty and staff only.  You must have a network username and PIDM to release print copies.  There is no guest printing, scanning or copying because of the network set up of these printers.

  • Students can print from non-UIW computers in three ways:

      • Mapping their laptop to the UIW Print Anywhere queue while on the UIW network.
      • Using a mobile print app to print from smartphones and tablets while on the UIW network.
      • Using the web-print feature via PaperCut, accessible in the MYWord Portal.

Printout and Copying Costs

  •  Black and white prints and copies are $.04 per page double sided/ $.06 per page single sided

  • Color printouts are $.20 per page double sided and $.24 per page single sided.  

  • The default is double-sided printing and black and white. If you wish to change to single-sided or color, you must do that before before sending document to the printer.

Pay for Printouts

  • To be able to print, you need to load money to your printing account via credit card using the PaperCut, which is accessible from MyWord.  You will be able to print and release from any printer in the library.  
  • To view step-by-step instructions on how to add funds to your account, see - How to Add Money to Your Account. 

Employee/Department Printing

  • Employees are not personally charged for printing. For all employees (full and part-time) printing will be charged back to the primary department to which they are assigned.  This is true for ANY printer in the UIW Print program.  Unlike students, employees may see a negative balance in Papercut. This will not impact their ability to print.  Detailed monthly statements for chargebacks will be sent to the department.
