Before you arrive:
When you arrive:
The Law Library's Document Delivery Center (DDC) is located right inside the law library entrance and has two printers and one photocopier/scanner students can use. We also have a printer for students on the third floor.
To use the library printers you must first take your laptop to the Law School Technology and Media Services office so they can configure your laptop. This process will take about ten minutes. Their office is room 311 in the law school building. Call 206-398-4178 to schedule a time; check their hours here.
Once your laptop is configured you can send a print job to the library printers, then stop by the law library to pick up your printouts in the DDC or from the 3rd floor printer.
The law library also has two Lexis+ printers located in the DDC. These printers can be used to print content from Lexis+, such as cases, articles, or the section of a statute.
