All the computers in the School of Theology Library are connected to BU IS&T’s MyPrint system, allowing current BU students, faculty, and staff to print documents using your printing allocation, which is updated each semester.
Full-time graduate students receive $40.00 of free printing per semester, and each double-sided page costs $0.08 per page. This adds up to 500 pages per semester.
The School of Theology Library has a MyPrint printer located by the scanners. Most of our public computers are connected to the MyPrint system; simply click “print” on a document and choose the printer “MyPrintBW” for black and white printing or “MyPrintColor” for color printing. Note: You cannot use your free sheets to print in color. You can print in color only by purchasing and using Convenience Points on the StudentLink.
The BU MyPrint printers are self-releasing. To release a print job, go to any printer on BU’s campus (including the one by the scanners in the STH Library) and scan your BU ID (or type in your BU username and password). Select the document you wish to print on the touchscreen, and it will begin printing immediately.
You can set up your personal computer to print to any MyPrint printer, including the one at the School of Theology Library. Consult BU IS&T’s step-by-step guide on setting up your computer to print to the MyPrint printer or consult the guide available here and at the School of Theology Library circulation desk!
If you exceed your print sheet allocation for the semester, you can still print using BU Convenience Points, which can be purchased on the StudentLink.
