Printing Press At Pitt

The University of Pittsburgh has acquired a new book machine that takes digital files and prints, aligns and binds books in under ten minutes.

Rush Miller is the Director of Library System at The University of Pittsburgh. He says the machine has numerous benefits - besides offering on demand books for people who might prefer a print book to reading on a computer screen, it might be cheaper for students to purchase a bound book than to buy a textbook published by a traditional printing company.
