How it works

Once you have the new print queue installed on your laptop as described below and you are ready to print a document, go to File then Print. Select YalePrintGuest from the printer selection menu, configure options (such as duplex) and click Print. Wait until the PaperCut client prompts you for your NetID and password. NOTE: If you are logged into a Yale Law School workstation with your NetID, you will not be prompted again for your NetID password. This only pertains to printing from your own laptop. You must be on YaleSecure for this to work. Once entered and the print job is sent, walk to one of the library printers and sign in on the touchscreen mounted on or near the printer. You can sign in with your NetID or wave your Yale ID Card. Select your print job and click Print Job(s).

Pricing is as follows: Black & White printing is 10 cents for the front side and 2 cents for the back side. Color printing is 30 cents per side.
