Using computer printers

Each of our computer rooms, and each of our libraries, is now attached to a central print server.  Students who wish to print a document from their computer work station send the required document/web-page to the central print server, where it is held in a line until the student gives the server an instruction to actually print the documents. 

Students may edit the documents they are holding in line by logging into the server.  The user name and login for this system are the same as those used to login to the computer. 

To print the documents, students will need their electronic university ID card.  Students should place their card on the electronic reader next to the printer.  This will automatically identify the student, print out any documents that are waiting on the server, and deduct the appropriate charge from the credit on the card.  Obviously, students should make sure they have enough credit to cover their print requirements before they do this.


Documents may be printed from any printer in the Hollar/Opletalova system.  They do not necessarily have to be printed in the same room where the student has been working.
