Printing & Copying

Wright State students and employees use their Wright1 Card to pay for printing and photocopying. Visitors must borrow a Guest PrintWright Card, available from the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor, to pay for printing and photocopying.

Complete instructions and a visual quick-guide are available for the printer/scanner/copier devices in the Library.


Printer/Scanner/Copiers are available on the 1st floor, 2nd floor, 3rd floor, in the Individual Study Room, and in Special Collections & Archives.

Library printers default to black & white, double-sided printing. Color and/or single-sided printing is available upon selection before sending the job to a printer.

Students release their print jobs by swiping their Wright1 card at any printer in the library. Follow the prompts on the printer's touchscreen.

For Wright State students and employees, photocopying and scanning are also available on the printer, using the Wright1 Card.

A Guest PrintWright Card will work for printing and copying on the printer/copier/scanner devices; for scanning, guests are invited to use the computers with attached scanners on the 2nd floor.
