Computers must be on the USMA network (DREN) in order to print. You'll need to scan your CAC at the release stations beside the printers to release your print job. If you do not release your print job within one hour, it will be automatically deleted from the print queue. Print jobs must be limited to 50 pages at a time, and all pages must be 8.5" x 11". If you receive an "Invalid Bar Code" message when trying to print, please see a Library staff member for help.

Color printing is not available.
