  • Obscene or otherwise inappropriate for the Library environment.
  • In violation of another’s intellectual property rights. For example, the printers will not be used to reproduce material that is subject to copyright, patent or trademark protection.

  • Print jobs that take longer than 10 hours will not be accepted.
  • The library cannot guarantee that any job will be completed by the date needed. In addition, not all digital models can be effectively printed with our equipment. If you have questions or concerns, please speak with a staff member prior to undertaking your project.
