  • Prints may be generated directly through MSU Print from any of over 100 of our public computer workstations. Or wirelessly from laptops, using the Webprint feature of MSU Print. Using MSU Print, Webprint, prints may also be generated from anywhere in the world, to be printed in our library.
  • Prints may also be generated from any of our selected resources computers, utilizing the Webprint feature, however you cannot save a file to the selected resource computers so you must first save the file you want to print to an external drive such as a thumb drive. There are also file type restrictions using Webprint. The advantage of using the selected resource computer would be that they do not require you to login and wait for the computer to configure.
  • Printers (black & white and color) are located in the Copy Center. There is also a black & white printer in Room 22. Prints are released using your MSU ID.
