Shapiro Science Library: Computers & Printing


Computing stations, 3rd Floor


The third floor of the Science Library contains two computer islands housing 17 Windows machines and 7 iMacs. All require a U-M uniqname and password to access. The nearest guest computers are located on the first floor of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library and the second floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. (Some databases, including SciFinder, can only be accessed via U-M validated sign-on.)


Computing station, 4th Floor


One computing station, an iMac, is located on the 4th floor for quick look-ups in the library catalog. It is located around the corner to the left of the elevators, near the stacks holding call numbers in the QA200s. This station also requires a U-M uniqname and password.




There are two printers available to University of Michigan users, located by the large computer island on the third floor. Printed pages are charged to the balance of your ITS Standard Computing Services account (you may want to check your balance before printing). Jobs waiting to be printed can be viewed on the monitor next to the printers. The MCard photocopiers on the third floor also have printing and scanning capabilities. U-M users may send documents to these machines via MPrint.

Ask library staff at the Undergraduate Library circulation desks on the first floor for assistance with fixing paper jams, filling paper trays, replacing toner, etc.

Printing/Copying Refunds

U-M affiliates can use this ITS form to request a printing/copying refund.



There are two MCard photocopier/printers in the Science Library, located on the 3rd floor near the large computer island. These are frequently used for copying print journal articles. Copies made using your MCard are charged to your standard computing services printing allocation; printing beyond your allocation will cause you to be charged at the rate of 6 cents per page.

You may also send jobs to these machines using MPrint. Select Central Campus > South Diag Area > Shapiro Science Library Copy 1 (or Shapiro Science Library Guest Copy).

If a printer/copier is jammed or out of paper or ink, please inform the staff at the Undergraduate Library Circulation desk on the first floor. After hours service requests may be called in to 4-HELP, which is available from 8AM-7PM Monday through Friday, 1PM-5PM Sunday, and is closed on Saturday.
