Printing and Binding

It’s time to stop re-reading and commit to getting those final pieces of work printed!

But before you do remember to save and back up all that hard work.

A161205-1 Library HC-194The Library web pages have detailed information and videos about how to print your work, including locations of printers (hint, we have them on other floors of the Library so don’t waste time queuing on the ground floor). You can also use ones in the social learning spaces and Student Hub.

And did you know that you can send your work to print from your own device rather than having to log on to a University PC? Our YouTube video shows you how.

Make sure you have enough money on your Campus Card before you start to print – you can top up at the Kiosks on the ground floors of the Libraries or online. But if you’re graduating this year only add small amounts as all credit on your i-Print account will be cleared when you graduate.

Don’t let binding your work become a bind (!) – you can:

  • bind it yourself at the City or Headingley Library. Buy a binding kit (binding comb, black card rear cover, clear PVC front cover) from the Library Help & Information Point for £1, and follow the instructions in our video
  • or, for £2 the Print Room based at Headingley Campus will bind most assignments for you.  Contact 0113 8123510 or Email: theprintroom@leedsbeckett.ac.uk (James Graham Building JG13) for more infoDSC_9026

And, like everything else to do with using the Library just Contact Us if you need any help.
