Current students receive a printing account credit with a beginning balance of $15 each semester. Printouts and copies are .10 per side B&W & .25 per side color. The library prints 2-sided by default, so a single page, double-sided printout costs .20. Printing costs are deducted automatically. Students may add money to their accounts at the Business Office (RPC room 102).
Community users receive 5 B&W prints at no cost. There is no way to purchase additional prints at this time.
The library does not carry textbooks for your courses. You can purchase/rent your textbook at the ECTC Campus Bookstore. Click on the link for "Textbooks" located under the yellow KY picture.
Your course might have an eTextbook that is included in the cost of your course and is available through Blackboard. Check your syllabus for information about your course materials.
The library does have a small collection of textbooks on "course reserve." These are items your professor placed in the library for students to use either in the library or for 3 days. Your instructor will state in the syllabus if they have placed an item "on reserve."
You may return items to the person at the library desk or use our 24/7 outside book drop located by the doors that face the Student Center. Laptops and Library of Things items must be returned to a staff member at the desk.
Textbooks used in your classes should be returned to the bookstore located in the RPC.
When you select the print, a small pop-up window should appear on the computer screen or in your bottom toolbar. This window shows how much printing money you have remaining in your student account. It will also tell you how much will be deducted when you print the current job. Click on "Accept" if you wish to continue.
Go to one of the printers and use the touch screen to enter your login and password. This will be the same thing you used to log into the computer and for Blackboard and email.
Select print and highlight your jobs and press the green print button.
Logoff with the door & arrow button in the upper right corner when finished.
To scan or make photocopies, you will follow the same log-in steps and select either copy or scan.
Current students can check out up to 8 books and 4 DVDs. Books check out for three weeks and DVDs for one week. You can renew your items online through your the book catalog or by contacting the library.
