In the past if you wanted to save database articles to a folder it was quite a complicated affair. You would have to create an account inside EBSCO and then sign in to this “add-on” account to save items. Today, it’s a snap, all you have to do is add items to a project! We think Projects is a great way to collect resources, and keep them organized in one place.

It is now possible to print using Bank Street’s WiFi network. You must be a graduate student and have a PaperCut account. If you are a parent or visitor ask for a print card at the circulation desk. Open the document you want to print on your mobile device. Look for a way to share your document, mostly it will be three small dots on the top right hand corner of your screen, or depending on the app it may be a small square box with an arrow pointing up.
If you want to print an assignment from your own device (i.e., laptop or mobile phone), it is now possible with WiFi printing. You only have to set up your device once. Here are the instructions for a MacOS laptop. Make sure you are connected to a Bank Street WiFi network.
