Printing and Copying

St. Mary’s Students: Printing Quicklinks

Attorneys and the Public: Printing Quicklinks

Students: Printing on Campus: St. Mary’s Easy Print Service / EZPrint

The St. Mary’s University printing service system is called Easy Print / EZPrint. It is a web-based service that requires you to upload documents to Gateway, then print to an Easy Print connected printer on campus.

Print confidential documents at your own risk. The print system will release the document through the online interface, and not from the printer. The Law Library cannot guarantee that by the time you pick up your document that it will not have been viewed by a third party.

To print, follow the steps listed below:
1.Save the document that you wish to print. It has to be saved on your computer’s hard drive.
2.Go to print.stmarytx.edu.
3. Login using your Gateway username and password.
4. Click on “Web Print” from the menu list on the left.
5. On the right side click on “Submit a job.”
6. Click on the radio button option that aligns with the desired printer location. Pick Law Library, not Blume Library. Blume is a different building across campus.
For color printing, select the printer called "COLOR - Law Library Under Stairs". When the color printer is selected, pages in greyscale will be charged at 5 cents per page, and pages in color will be charged at 40 cents per page.
7. Click on “Print options and account selection.”
8. Select the number of copies to print.
9. Click on “Upload document.” (EasyPrint will only print Microsoft Excel, Powerpoint, Word, or XPS documents. Nothing else. Consult the table at the end of this section for a list of files.)
10. Browse for the file that you saved in step 1.
11. Click on “Upload & complete.”
12. Click on “Held in a queue”.
13. When you are ready to pick up your job click “Print.”
DO NOT complete this step until you are ready to pick up your print job. Your document will immediately come out of the printer, including any personal or confidential information. It may be a good idea to print only from laptop while standing next to the printer.
14. Retrieve your print job from the printer location that you selected in step 4.

If you have any problems please contact the ITS help desk at 210-431-4357 (Mon-Fri 8-5 PM), or by email at helpdesk@stmarytx.edu. If you need after hours help please see the circulation desk on the first floor of the law library.

Attorneys and the Public: Photocopying

  • $5.00 = 100 copies
  • $10.00 = 200 copies
  • $20.00 = 400 copies

Overview of Scanning Options

Scanning can be done with either a BizHub machine, or a stand alone office scanner.

Flatbed Scanner: Scanning Bound Books: It is recommended that you use the home office flatbed scanner to scan bound books. This machine will show you a picture of the page as it scans, so you know the page cropping is correct. In case of a malfunction during scanning, the stand alone scanner will only delete the last page scanned, and will save all previous pages. Meanwhile, the BizHub sometimes incorrectly crops pages pressed on the glass and may scan only a portion of the page. In case of malfunction, the BizHub will delete an entire file, including all previously scanned pages. Both errors can cause a big delay, if you have turned the pages and positioned the book several times before loosing the file or realizing only part of each page was scanned.

BizHub Scanner Printer Combos: Scanning a Stack of Papers: For a stack of pages, it is recommended you use one of the BizHubs. Cropping has not been an issue with stacks of paper, and the BizHub is much faster because it can feed in an entire stack of pages at once.

Stand Alone Flatbed Scanner: Scanning Bound Books

The law library has a flatbed scanner connected to computer, which is publicly accessible at the Circulation Desk. Instructions for using it are posted by the scanner.
