New service – print from any device

We’ve updated our print services to include printing from any device, including mobile phones, laptops, or your home computer.

Thanks to these new kiosks at Acomb, Clifton, Tang Hall and York Explore libraries, anybody can now print documents without logging onto the library computers or even being a library member. Residents and visitors alike can simply email your print jobs to the library printer. So if you’re on your way to a gig and have forgotten to print your ticket, it’s no problem, just email the tickets to the library printer, and receive a unique job reference back to collect your print.

The new kiosks have been installed with the support of United Carlton and City of York Council ICT. Helen Whitehead, E-Services Librarian, says “For a while now, customers have been asking for wi-fi printing, and we’ve found it tricky to find a secure but affordable way to achieve it. We’re so pleased we’ve found this solution, which doesn’t just offer secure wi-fi printing, but also printing from home, and easy photocopying and scanning too.”

As well as the new services, the kiosks also handle printing from the public computers. While we have offered printing from public computers for many years, this new technology brings the service right up to date so you can collect your own prints privately and efficiently, without staff handling your sensitive documents, and the prints are higher quality too.

See information about the security aspects of this new system on our policies webpage. See the prices on our fees and charges webpage.
