Print, Scan, Digitize

Printing is available in all Columbia University Library locations. To print, just tap your CUID on the card reader and the printer will print everything that's in your PawPrint queue. 

PawPrint is Columbia University’s student and faculty printing system on the Morningside campus. With PawPrint, you can send a document to print from any computer, and print it at any PawPrint print station. PawPrinters have been upgraded to a "touchless" system, just tap your CUID on the card reader and the printer will print everything currently in your print queue. 

Please visit the PawPrint Quick Start Guide to get started, check quotas, report issues, find PawPrint locations on campus, and more.
