How can I print or make copies in the library?

236 views   |   0 Vote this question as useful.   Last updated on Dec 07, 2022   

Yes. Patrons must log in to the library printers using their Wagner ID card or their Wagner OneLogin credentials. Only current students, faculty and staff members have a printing account.

Print jobs can be sent from library computers to SecurePrint, or can be emailed (from your Wagner email account only) to mobileprint@wagner.edu. File formats for mobile print must be PDF, DOC, DOCX, JPG or PNG only.

Copies, scanning and printing are available and pricing varies dependent on choices made for simplex, duplex, greyscale or color printing.

To refill your printing funds balance, go to the Bursar's office (Cunard Hall), pay for printing, and get a receipt. Bring that receipt to the IT Help Desk (lower level of library) and they will add the funds to your printing account.

How do I find books by their call number?

214 views   |   0 Vote this question as useful.   Last updated on Nov 22, 2022   

All books held in the library are assigned a "Call Number," which lets you know where it is shelved in the library. Library of Congress Call Numbers are made up of a combination of letters, whole numbers and decimal numbers.

PS Letters of the Alphabet
3525 Whole Numbers
.I96 Letters and Decimal numbers
G6 Letters and Decimal numbers

The third and fourth lines are usually made up of combinations of letters and decimal numbers. They place all of the PS3525 books alphabetically by author and title. The 96 of .I96 should be shelved reading the number digit by digit from left to right. Hence .I933 would be shelved before .I96. The call number PS3525.I96 G6 means the following:

PS American Literature
3525 Authors in the early 20th Century whose last names begin with "M"
.I96 Margaret Mitchell, specifically
G6 Gone with the Wind

If you have questions, please ask a librarian.
