Print and Scan at Ruth Lilly Medical Library


The multifunction Ricoh printers in the library have options not previously available on single devices, including:

  • Black and White or Color
  • Printing in simplex (single-sided) or duplex (double-sided)
  • Card-swipe access via your Crimson Card

To Send Output to a Print Release Station

  1. In the print window, please choose black and white (BW) or color printer option.
  2. Go to the print release station for the printer you wish to use, and then swipe your Crimson Card in the card reader or log in with your IU Network ID.
  3. Select one or more of your print jobs from the list, and then, at the bottom of the screen, click Print.
  4. Log out of the print release station and collect your output from the printer.

The queue selected (ending in "BW1" or "Color1") determines the per-page rate for the output, regardless of the color content of the page. Black and white printing in the library is $.04 per page and color is $.25 using your Crimson Card.

All Medical Students are granted a balance to their print allotment at the beginning of each year. For more information about Medical Student print allotments, please refer to this page from Medical Student Education. Once you have used all of your Medical Student printing allotment, you must purchase additional funds via your Crimson Card in order to continue printing. To check your remaining balance, please visit the Crimson Card homepage. Click "Manage Your ID Card" and login. Select "My Accounts">"Balance History".

Only Medical Student print allotments will work Ruth Lilly Medical Library printers. For Medical Resident printing options at Ruth Lilly Medical Library, please visit our Medical Faculty & Residents FAQ page.
