Printing and Copying


Cardinal Stritch University uses PaperCut, an eco-friendly print management solution. Students are allotted 600 print counts per semester; each black-and-white page is one count and each color page is five counts. Additional print counts may be purchased in the library for $0.10 each. All library computers use PaperCut software. Each time a student prints, they are alerted of their print count and must confirm the print job.

The library has four black and-white printers, two high-quality color printers, and one multifunction color printer. All computers in the library can print to at least one black-and-white printer.


The library has one multifunction printer that is capable of photocopying. It is located on the first floor near the reference desk. Copies are $0.10 per page and require a Stritch ID card. Students can add money for copies to their Stritch ID at the circulation desk.


The library has one multifunction printer that is capable of scanning to email. It is located on the first floor near the reference desk. The library also has two small scanners that are directly connected to computers. One is located on the north wall of the first floor, and one is on the north wall of the second floor. There is no charge for scanning.
