New Print System coming this Summer

newprintsystem-blogYou spoke and we listened. Starting in Summer 2017, an improved print system is coming to Reynolds Libraries. The new print system will have more capabilities, including the use of credit and debit cards and submitting print requests to the cloud from off campus.

The new system will be in place in late May/early June. After the new system is in place, your EquiTrac print card can no longer be used for printing and refunds will not be available. Updates on the new print system will be posted on the Reynolds library website.

Thank you with your help as we transition to this improved system!
