- Using the Library
Dibner Library uses a printing system, called Pharos, to conserve resources and improve efficiency. NYU students are given a printing and copying allowance of $50 each semester ($25 during Jterm and in the Summer as long as they are taking classes,) and charged for use above that amount.
You can print from any computer within the library as well as from your laptop once you have installed the printing software. Retrieve your print job at any of the available locations on the School of Engineering campus (the library is the only location that offers color printing).
