Printing at Catherwood

The public computers in Catherwood are connected to printers that can be used with Net-Print, which is a laser printing service offered by Cornell Information Technologies. To learn more visit their Net-Print website.

We have five printers available, three black and white, one color, and one vendacard operated printer. All printers are located in the reference and library training rooms.

  • The color printer costs 25 cents per page. Choose "Catherwood Ref NetPrint Color".
  • Double-sided (duplex) printing is available on the black and white printers. Double-sided printouts are 9 cents per side; therefore two pages printed on one sheet of paper results in a Net-Print charge of 18 cents.

Microforms at Catherwood

The Microforms Room is located off the Reference Room. Take the first left turn as you enter Reference from the Circulation Area. Here you will find microfilm and microfiche reader/printers, a microform scanner, and Catherwood's microfilm and microfiche collections. Kheel Center microforms must be requested in the Kheel Center.
