From Library Computers
All currently enrolled IC students who have a Netpass account will have an unlimited printing allowance during the Summer Session 2014. Beginning August 11, 2014, students will have a set printing allowance. For more information on the College print management program, see the ITS pages.
To print from a Library computer:
- When you click "print," a popup will appear.
- Log in using your Netpass username and password.
- Select what you want to print from the print jobs list.
- Don't forget to log out.
- Pick up your printout at the Circulation Desk.
- If you're in a hurry, try our print-only stations. There are two located to the right of the circulation desk on the second floor.
Color Printing & Copying
The Library has a color printer / copier, located to the right of the Circulation Desk. It prints PDF, JPG, and TIFF files. The charge is 30 cents per copy. If you need to print a Word or Powerpoint file, convert it to a PDF first. The color printer is not networked, so save the file you want to print to a flash drive and then bring that to the printer / copier.
The Library has four copiers: three on the second floor and one on the third. The middle copier/scanner on the second floor will accept change. There is also a color copier/scanner on the third floor that accepts coins. The others require an ID Express account. A machine for adding funds to your ID card is located near the copiers on the second floor.
The color copier on the second floor and the black and white copier on the third floor also serve as scanners. You can save your scans as PDF, TIFF, or JPEG files. These copiers are not networked, so you'll need to save your work to a flash drive. Flash drives are available for check out at the circulation desk.
- Please print responsibly. Save a tree.
- E-mail yourself the URLs of sites you are interested in rather than print them.
- Use the "print preview" feature to see how a document will print. Only print when you are satisfied with the preview.
- Watch those PowerPoints! If you're not careful, PowerPoint will print one slide to a page. Try printing as "handouts" to get more slides per page.
- Rather than copying print materials, scan them to read on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Scanning is free—copying costs money.
- Don't resend your job if it doesn't immediately print. There may be other jobs ahead of yours in the queue or the printer may have run out of paper. ITS consultants can help.
