Where can I print?
Printing is available for all Library computers.
Printers are located in the Reserve Room on the lower level and near the computers on the upper level.
An Anytime Printing station is located at the Library's entrance. Students can use a nearby computer to retrieve a document and print it out even when the Library is closed.
How do I print?
After sending a document to print from a library computer, a popup on your screen will ask you to log in with your John Jay ID and password. Then go to a Print Release Station (located next to the printers) and enter the same ID and password. The document should then print out.

Three scanners are located in the Reserve Room on the lower level, and four scanners are located on the upper level near the Law Reference section.
You can email scanned files, print them, and/or save them to your USB drive, Google Drive, or Dropbox.
Students may only use the scanners for limited periods of time when the Library is busy.
Scanning is free. Note that individuals should never scan or copy a complete book, as that would be a copyright infringement. What you can photocopy and scan »
