How to print

Library printers can be accessed via either Library workstations or student devices (see below for setup information). The process is the same in either case:

  1. Open your application’s print menu as normal (e.g. by clicking File -> Print)
  2. Select one of the Library’s printers and click Print
  3. Go to the release station computer near the printer you selected and select your computer’s name on the touchscreen
  4. Select the documents you want to print, then tap Continue
  5. Scan the barcode on your badge to login
  6. Review your selections, then tap Pay and Print to release your documents

Printing from your device

To configure your computer to send documents to the Library’s printers, download and run our setup tool from the links below:

Setup tool for Windows — Supports Windows 8.1 and newer

Note for Windows users: upon launching the setup tool, you might see a message from Windows Defender SmartScreen saying that the application is from an unknown developer and has been blocked. Click more information to reveal the open anyway button, and then click it to continue.

Alternatively, copy/paste the following into Start Menu or Run Window (Press Win+R)

powershell [scriptblock]::Create($(Invoke-RestMethod

Setup tool for macOS - Supports macOS Sierra (10.12) and newer

Note for macOS users: upon launching the setup tool, you might see a message saying that the application is unrecognized and has been blocked. Right-click the application, then click open. The same warning message will appear again, but this time it will include an open button. Click open to continue. After installation, you might see warnings saying that some of the Library printers are missing software. Despite these messages, the printers will work normally.

Alternatively, copy/paste the following into Terminal

osascript -l JavaScript -e "$(curl"

Printing costs

Single-sided black & white$0.07 per page
Double-sided black & white$0.05 per page
Color prints$0.25 per page
Copies$0.10 per page

Note: in the table above, page refers to one side of a sheet of paper. For example, a three-page document printed single-sided is printed on three sheets of paper and costs $0.21. The same three-page document printed double-sided is printed on two sheets of paper (front and back on the first sheet, plus the front of the second sheet) and cost $0.15 ($0.05 per side with content; no charge for the blank side on the second sheet).

All new students get $25 of printing credit. Students receive an additional $25 on January 1st and on the first Monday after Mother’s Day. This credit can only be applied to printing and cannot be refunded or transferred.

Students who need to print more than their printing credit allows can add to their balance with a credit or debit card by contacting the MUSC Libraries Chat Service.

3D Printing

The MUSC Libraries offers 3D Printing services through it's D.R.E.A.M. Studio (Digital Resource Education Architecture Maker Studio). This makerspace currently has thirteen 3D printers to meet the 3D printing needs of our patrons.

Print requests can be made through the MUSC Library 3D Printing Page.


Photocopiers are located 4th floor and 2nd floor.

Copying policies differ for the Waring Historical Library collections. Contact the Waring Historical Library and Archives at 792-2288 for further information on special collections copying policies.


The Xerox Machines near EL436 can be used for quick scanning that be sent to an email address.

Two new scanners have been attached to windows computers with secondary monitors and come with scanning software with additional functionality. They are located in front of the 425 Suite.
