Answer

In order to print on the wireless network, you'll need to install the printer package, available on the AU Campus Printer Installation Portal. If you're having trouble setting up wireless access in the library, just visit the Information Desk or the Office of Information Technology's Support Desk, both located on the library's first floor.

The accepted form of payment for printing in the library is EagleBucks. For the Fall and Spring semesters, AU students receive an allotment of funds added to their AU ID for printing. Unused print allotment funds expire at the end of the semester. There is no print allotment for the summer sessions.

Once the printing allotment is gone, regular EagleBucks can be used to print.  To add more to an Eaglebucks account, go to https://www.eaglebucks.com/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp.

Non-AU guests should visit the Info Desk for assistance with printing.

As you print your document in the library, select "AU Printers", and enter your user name in the pop-up window. Then, go to any printer and swipe your AU ID or guest print card. As of August 2015, all patrons must register AU IDs and print cards. This can be done at any touchscreen-enabled Pharos printer. You can select specific documents to print, or print all jobs by selecting "Print All." Before printing, check whether your document is the correct number of pages.  Remember to log off when you are finished.
