Questions after hours?

We are sorry we missed you.  Below are information and links that will help answer questions you have when we are not here.

Printing:  For questions about printing from a library computer or from your laptop, go to http://printing.gwu.edu

Printing Tips

  • Printing double-sided from Macs does not work.  Your document will come out blank.  To print double-sided, do it from a Windows computer.
  • If your document looks different from the preview when you print it out, try saving it as a PDF and then print it out.
  • Make sure your document is set to print on letter-sized paper (8.5 x 11 in).  Your print job will not come out or be canceled if your settings are not letter.
  • To print duplex or in color, choose from the several WEPA options on the Print menu of the computer, then go to a kiosk.  Any Colonial Printing kiosk can print in color or double-sided.  

Computer, Programs, and Software:  Need to find a software or program?  Looking for an available computer?  
Need to learn how to use a program? The library subscribes to Lynda, an online software training website.  Lynda is available on the computers in the The Lab.

Scanners:  Read the instructions on how to scan posted on or next to the scanners.

Logging in problems:  If you have trouble logging in to the library computers, call the Division of Information Technology at (202) 994-4948.  Technicians are available to help you 24 hours a day.

Research:  Research Guides can help get you started on your research.  These guides list databases and resources, recommended by librarians, for different subject areas.

Supplies:  Staplers are available for your use, usually at the Helpdesk.  But sometimes, they jam, break, or disappear after hours.  We have provided paper clips for you at the Helpdesk, as an alternative.
