Saying Goodbye to the Old Print System

June 29, 2015

The Norris Medical Library initiated a new printing system in February 2015.  At that time, we continued to allow use of the old BLUE print cards so you had the opportunity to use up the value on those cards.  As indicated then, we will completely stop use of the old BLUE cards as of June 30, 2015.  From July 1, only USCards and the new Print/Copy cards may be used, and the BLUE cards will no longer function nor have any value.

Remember that you can add value to your USC ID card and use that to print!

Suggestion Response: Extended Hours for Pharmacy Finals

June 18, 2015

NML-Wordmark-2015-For-Blog-PostingsYour suggestions are welcome and help us to improve our services. You may make a suggestion by using our suggestion box located near the exit in the plaza level, or send a suggestion via email to:

Submitted 6/18/15

The extended hours start in May, but pharmacy students have 5 finals in the beginning of May (from the 1st – 11th) and some years it start at the end of April. If the library closes they have essentially nowhere to go. Whereas medical students have MDLs & their own cubicle 24 hours a day. So if the library’s hours were extended starting halfway through April, it would be very helpful. Medical students have exams in June, so it could be normal hours from May 11 – 24d or so if cost is an issue.


Thank you for your suggestion. We appreciate your input. We will be in the process of setting hours for the entire academic year this summer and will take your suggestion under consideration.

Associate Director,
