Himmelfarb Library has partnered with Colonial Printing and WEPA (We Print Anywhere) in order to provide the convenience of cloud-based printing. Black and white, as well as color printing, is available at all of the first and third floor print kiosks in the Himmelfarb Library. You may print from the computer workstations on the first and third floor, your own laptop, your wireless device (including phones and tablets), as well as from a USB device.
WEPA also offers printing from email. For detailed instructions about this service, visit the How to Print section at Colonial Printing and select the EMAIL TO PRINT tab.
You may also pick up your printouts from any kiosk on campus .

Students will see a $30 credit on their WEPA account the first time they log in at any kiosk starting on August 26. The credit will be $15 for any students that start in the spring semester. See the Printing Credits FAQ for more information.
