IALS uses PaperCut to provide printing, photocopying and scanning facilities to its library users. You will need to register online for an IALS-PaperCut account and have money in it before you can print, copy or scan.
If you have a temporary paper library card please see staff at the Library Enquiries desk who will create an account or you. Use your library card barcode number as username and choose a strong password.
You can log on to one of the four MFDs at IALS to photocopy, scan or print.
If you have a plastic IALS library card just tap the card on the MFD to log on automatically.
If you have a temporary paper card log on manually at one of the MFDs using the username and password you created.
Please note that your money will not be deducted from your account until you release the print job. Unprinted jobs will be held in the queue for 24 hours and then automatically deleted.
