Law School Student Printing

Two new Pharos printing stations were recently installed in the law school, providing a convenient alternative to all Carolina Law students wishing to print wirelessly from their laptops. One printer is located in the upper level of the rotunda, while the other can be found just off the rumpus room, to the right of the TV viewing area. The new printers require installation and configuration so that they will appear on your laptop.

Please review the documentation listed under Printing (Students Only). Windows laptop users will need to download and install a custom version of the "CCI Printing" software, while Mac users will need to add an additional print queue using the existing CCI Printing installer. All relevant download links and instructions are included in the PDF you will find at the URL above.

This project will ensure that these materials remain available regardless of any future changes at Google. The collection will grow as the libraries' materials continue to be scanned and digitized.
