What We Will Print

  • The University Library only accepts print requests for academic printing for student poster sessions or for faculty/staff conferences.
    • Academic printing is defined as a poster created for a poster session that is presented either on- or off-campus and is the product of research or a class assignment.
      • Examples: fall/winter term economics poster sessions, Shepherd Poverty poster sessions, LACS poster sessions.
      • No marketing-type or signage printing.
  • We will only print one poster per student (or student group) per course or per faculty/staff conference.
    • We will not print rough drafts (only final prints). 
  • 2 business day turnaround time is required for all submissions. Posters must be submitted as PDFs and will be printed at 30×42 inches.
  • Contact University Copying Services for small format printing or for marketing-type and signage printing.


Academic posters created by students or by faculty/staff members are printed at no cost.

  • Reprints may be requested, but only in the case of significant typos or other issues that are not a result of the printing process. The University Library may grant reprints, but will charge at a rate $35 per poster.


Copyright compliance is the responsibility of the user. The University Library staff reserves the right to refuse to accept any printing request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
