Pharos Printing, Copying, and Scanning

Overview

NOTE: You need to be on-campus or use VPN to use Pharos.

We provide multi-function devices on each level of the library and in eight other locations on the UNTHSC campus.

Each of these units handles computer printing and photocopying jobs, as well as scanning documents and sending them to e-mail. The Pharos print management system controls these functions. A Pharos account must be created before using the equipment.
