Ink kiosk - located on the 2nd floor of the Egan Library

Print/Scan/Copy/Fax services are located on the main level (2nd floor) of the Egan Library and in the lobby.

Egan Library offers managed printing (pay-per-print) powered by ink. This service enables printing from virtually any device, as well as cloud accounts and USB drives. Users can print from all library computers, personal computers, can connect to documents from cloud storage services at the SmartStation, a print kiosk powered by frontier technology, or files (attachments) can be sent from the email address associated with your ink account to upload@print.inkcloud.me 

Print jobs are only released when the user logs in/swipes their card and pays for the prints at a SmartStation.  SmartStations are located in the Egan Library and in the lobby.  Drivers are available for personal computers after logging in to the UAS inkCloud portal.  All online accounts are managed by ink and the service accepts promo codes, credit/debit cards, and preloaded value cards (see below).

Printing reimagined at Egan Library is a sustainable and eco-friendly solution. The ink SmartStation:”

  • is green
  • uses less power

  • reduces waste by eliminating mountains of unclaimed print jobs
