Lexis Printers

Lexis allows students to print research materials from its database for free on Lexis-owned printers in the library’s computer lab.  Using the Lexis printers is a great way to conserve your annual 1500-page “free” printing allotment.  To print to the Lexis printers, select the "LIBRARY" or "3RD FLOOR COMPUTER LAB" printer from the Lexis printing options.
