You spoke and we listened. Beginning in August 2017, Reynolds Libraries launched a new print system called PaperCut. This replaced the previous Equitrac system.

New features include the acceptance of credit cards and coins, and web-printing (from personal laptops/mobile devices). For any and all questions pertaining to the new print system, please visit our Reynolds Printing guide at library.reynolds.edu/printing. Once there, you will find step-by-step tutorials for using the new print system, tips, and a comprehensive FAQ.

Your EquiTrac print card can no longer be used for printing; however refunds will be available from the Business Offices beginning Monday, August 14th.

Thank you for your patience as we launch this new & improved system!
