Information Commons at the Daniel J. Kaufman Library & Learning Center: Printing/Scanning

This LibGuide provides information about the three Information Commons areas found at GGC. It also provides information about additional services including study room reservations, printing/scanning, and the media equipment available for borrowing.

Printing

Black-and-white and color documents can be printed in all three Information Commons spaces on campus (Kaufman Library, Building B, and the Den in Building A).

Printing costs:

  • Black-and-white
    • Single page: 10 cents
    • Duplex (dual-sided) printing: 17 cents (8.5 cents per page)
  • Color
    • Single page: 25 cents
    • Duplex (dual-sided) printing: 47 cents (23.5 cents per page)

Printing must be paid for using the available Cave Cash on a GGC student's Claw Card. Cave Cash can be added two ways:

  • At a black PHIL Station, available in Building B, Building E (Student Center), or Building 1000 (Student Housing), or at Student Accounts in Building D (WARNING: Cave Cash added through Student Accounts may not be available for 24 hours!)
    • The PHIL Stations take $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills only.
    • The PHIL Stations do not give change!
  • Online with a debit or credit card at my.ggc.edu.‚Äč
    • Go to the Claw Card tab and follow the instructions.
    • A minimum of $1 must be deposited to the Cave Cash account.

If you need assistance with printing, please ask for help at the Information Commons Help Desk.

Scanning

Patrons are able to scan documents for free in the following ways: 

  • The Ricoh printers in our Information Commons spaces also have scanning capability.  These scanners are unable to scan anything larger than letter-sized or 8.5x11.
  • Each Information Commons also has a designated scanning computer.
  • The Kaufman Library has two photocopiers that have scanning capability: one near the restrooms on the First Floor, and one on the Second Floor, next to the windows.  The scanned document will be emailed to a designated email account.

If you need assistance with scanning, please ask for help at the Information Commons Help Desk.

Our new Ricoh scanner/printers.

FYI

To release a print job, the Claw Card used to pay for the job must belong to the person logged onto the computer that originated the print request.

Faculty and staff currently cannot use their Claw Cards to print from the Information Commons computers.

Printing options that are available include:

  • landscape/portrait orientation
  • converting color documents to grey-scale
  • dual-sided
  • multiple slides/pages per page

Reference the floor plans on each page for the locations of the printers.
