To see your print job queue, go to and log in.

If you are printing to a plotter, you will need to pick up your print on the second floor of Cooper Library.  If you incorrectly submit a plot or need to delete it from the queue for any reason, please call us immediately at (864) 656-4766.  The user has no direct access to their plot once it has been submitted. If the plot that was submitted has already been printed, your account will be charged.
