Can I view library materials in the Library?
 

In NicMedia there are plenty of options to use the media items in the Library. We have plenty of televisions hooked up with DVD players and VCRs.

Can I use my student account to pay for NicMedia purchases?
 

Unfortunately, we cannot accept payments from student accounts for anything purchased in NicMedia. You must bring cash or a personal check. However, we can charge campus budget numbers if you are faculty or staff representing a department.

The multi-purpose copiers allow you to print, copy, scan, staple, hole punch and fold documents. Our LIBORANGE and LIBBLUE copiers print in color as well as black and white. You may also print using specialty paper, which you may purchase from NicMedia by visiting the Library Tech Assistant window.

How do I print a poster?
 

The wide format printer is not a self-service machine, so the library staff must make the prints for you. To submit a print request, please contact Preston Howell. To speed up the process, please include the following in your email: paper type, file in the correct size, and an applicable budget number.

The cost for each poster includes a $1.50 charge per square foot of print area. Afterward, there is a charge per square foot of paper used, which varies based on type. Below you will find a current list of options available in NicMedia.
