There are three printers available: a black & white and a color printer on the first floor of the library; a black & white printer in the Loew Student Lounge. To print:

  1. Choose either the Webster B&W or the Webster Color printer from the Print window. Note: you can't print color pages in the Loew Student Lounge.
  2. Enter your Tufts Username, a name to identify the document you are printing (optional), and a password.
  3. Go to the Print Release Station—the computer near the printer you'd like to print from— enter your Tufts Username and swipe your Tufts ID card through the card reader.
  4. Select your print job and click print. The cost to print the job will automatically be deducted from your account.

Note: Double-sided printing is the default setting. To print single-sided, change the printer settings before you print.

Printing from your Computer

To send print jobs from your computer to a Grafton Campus (library) printer, download and install the Windows or Macintosh print client on your computer, then follow the printing instructions above. There is also a complete list of University print packages. Note: Macs may need to update their HP Printer Driver from the App Store and set the color default setting to duplex.


There are two scanners available. One is located near the Library Circulation Desk and one is adjacent to the Reserves book shelves on the first floor of the library. Use the scanner to send a copy of an article to an email address, Google Docs, printer, or save to a USB drive.
