Printing an Object

Please email Ashley Creek, Emerging Technologies Librarian, ( to set up an appointment to review your files to be printed. De Paul Library staff will then print files and email when objects are ready to be picked up.

There is currently no cost associated with objects printed for USM students, faculty, and staff.

The library may not be able to accommodate requests for specific colors, large print sizes, or rush print orders. Please plan at least 72 hours between your appointment and expected pickup of a printed object. Objects will not be printed when the library is not open.
