Printing, Copying, and Scanning at Huron Library

The Library at Huron is delighted to announce new and improved printing, copying, and scanning services in September 2017.

In addition to the online print management system PaperCut, which was introduced to campus in 2015, visitors to the Library at Huron are be able to print, copy, and scan documents in either black and white or full colour, on the same Toshiba multifunction devices used across Western Libraries. Your printing account, which is connected to your Western Identity, allows you to use the funds you load on your PaperCut account to print at Huron, or at any Western Libraries location, as well as within the GenLabs, and at Brescia.

In order to print or copy within the Library at Huron, you must either load money onto your PaperCut account using a credit card, or purchase a printing voucher in cash at the Library’s Service Desk, which you then redeem on your PaperCut account.

Please note that all printing requires a PaperCut account. Log into your account at http://papercut.uwo.ca with your Western username and password. If you cannot login please see library staff.

Please see the links below for more information about how to copy, print, or scan, or ask a Library and Learning Services staff member for assistance.
