Printing in Nimitz

Midshipmen and faculty are allocated 100 printing pages each semester and 50 pages during the summer. It is the responsibility of each individual to monitor their use of this allocation. Print jobs can only be issued from USNA-approved devices, including desktop computers in Nimitz Library and midshipman laptops (see instructions below). Printing is only available to those holding a valid USNA email account. You can learn more about printing in Nimitz in our Library FAQs.

The Library has set up a Web print service for midshipmen, faculty and staff through PaperCut. This service will allow you to print to public printers in the library from USNA approved laptops and other mobile devices. Supported files are Microsoft Office, PDF, JPG, GIF, PNG, and XPS.
