Non-students may print using a Guest Printing Card. Guest Printing Cards may be purchased from the vending machine located on the second floor of Alden Library. The card costs a minimum of $3.00 ($2.00 service fee for the card, plus $1.00, or any amount of your choice, in printing funds). After the initial purchase, you may add printing funds to the card at any time with no additional service fee.

Have an old Vended Printing Card? Trade it in for a new Guest Printing Card at no cost through September 30, 2015 at the Alden Library 2nd Floor Learning Commons Desk, Alden Library 4th Floor Circulation Desk, or Music and Dance Library desk.

To register your card so you can check your balance or add value online, go to the Print Card Management Portal and click “Don’t have an account? Register now.” (Note that this account is different from your OHIO account.)
