Printing, Photocopying and Scanning at the Library

Printing from Medical Library computers is available through an arrangement with Yale Printing & Publication Service (Yale YPPS).   Six multifunction machines located throughout the Medical Library allow photocopying and scanning in addition to printing.  You can also configure your laptop printer to use the system. 

ACCOUNTS: A Yale PaperCut account is required to print, copy or scan from these machines.  Create or add value to an account through the YPPS Print Account Management page.

  • Double-sided B&W copies and prints cost $0.06 on average ($0.10 for the first side and $0.02 for the second side).
  • Single-sided B&W prints and copies cost $0.10. 
  • 11"x17" copies cost $0.20 (only available on multifunction machines in the journal stacks)

Configure your Laptop for the PaperCut/BluePrint System

The simplest way to print is to use the Web Print function from your PaperCut User Page.  This function will allow you to upload a variety of different file formats and send them to the Campus-wide Black & White or  Color Queue. If you print more frequently or need to print formats not supported by the Web Print service, follow the instructions in the Quick Queue Set-Up Guide for Students section on the PaperCut Documentation & Drivers page.
