How do I print?

Print from your laptop or mobile device by sending your document as an attachment to printing@sagu.edu or by uploading the document at https://mobileprinting.sagu.edu. For more information, visit http://www.sagu.edu/services/campus-printing. Microsoft Office files (like from Word, Excel, or PowerPoint) and PDFs are the best bet for correct printing.

If you are unable to login, please email library@sagu.edu and we can reset your PIN for you.

Yes, we have five (5) computers equipped with Accordance! Additionally, we have many computers equipped with either PC Study Bible or Word Search 9, either of which you may use to complete your accordance assignments - although Accordance is by far the easiest to use. Also, did you know Accordance now offers a free version, Accordance 12 Lite? Many assignments in the Core Bible courses can be completed with the Lite version.
