Black-and-white (10¢/page) and color (50¢/page) printers are available at Swain Library.

After sending your file to the printer from any of Swain’s computers, use one of the three payment methods below. For more information, see Residential Computing Printing: General Overview (SUNet ID required) and SULAIR: Printing in the Libraries.

  1. Students: Go to to release your print job to the printer. The cost will be added to your StanfordCardPlan. If you have not activated your StanfordCardPlan, you may also use Method #3.
  2. Faculty & Staff: Go to to release your print job to the printer. The cost will be deducted from funds previously added to your SUID card at a Cash-to-Card machine.
  3. All: You may use a SULAIR Cash Card. Go to the Print Release Computer Station located by the front entrance, select your print job from the queue, and swipe your Cash Card.


Swain Library has two digital photocopiers that make single or double-sided, black and white copies (13¢/page). The machines only accept SUID cards and SULAIR Cash Cards.

Please see SULAIR: Photocopying for additional information about payment, color copiers, machines that accept cash, Cash-to-Card machine locations, departmental cards, and reporting service problems.

Cash Cards

SULAIR Cash Cards are available for purchase at the Cash-to-Card machine located to the left of the Circulation Desk. Blank cards cost $1.00; additional funds must then be added before the card can be used. Faculty and staff may use the Cash-to-Card machine to add funds to their SUID cards. No change is available from Swain Library staff. Information about other Cash-to-Card machine locations is available at SULAIR: Photocopying.


Swain Library has a scanner attached to the PC in the Reference Room (see Swain Floorplan for location). Only Stanford users can use this machine (SUNet ID is required). Files may be saved to a user’s personal AFS space or to a USB flash drive.
