Printing & Copying

The Pharos print and copy system is available at many locations on campus for printing and copy services for students, faculty, staff, guests, and alumni. Pharos uses the Biola campus ID card to access individual print queues and student dollars for payment. Student dollars may also be used to purchase food. To add student dollars to your account, use the self-service kiosk, located on the Middle Level of the library near the Reference Desk. Learn more about student dollars here.

To set up a department account with Pharos print & copy contact the IT Helpdesk.

Photocopiers are located on all levels of the library. Print stations are located near the Reference Desk, in the Instruction Lab, and on the Lower Level.

For further help with printing or copying inside the library, please ask the Reference Services Assistant.
