Printing and Copying
It's been a busy start to the year, and there have been a lot of recent changes. Please make sure that you read back at least a week to make sure that you are up to date.
As of yesterday, we've begun switching over to Uniprint, which is the self-serve printing used by the rest of the University Libraries. All machines marked with a yellow dot are Uniprint-enabled, and the rest will be following very shortly. When that happens, all machines will default to send jobs to the print release stations. There are two print release stations on the cloverleaf table on the 2nd floor and one near the stairwell on the 3rd floor.
Users may also still print to the Circulation Desk, by changing the drop-down menu in the Print Window to CCR_A. EFS number users will need to do this, for example.
We have converted most of our copiers to self-serve, as well. We have two self-serve machines with card readers (one on each floor) and one more on the 2nd floor will be switched over by the end of the week. The only Touchkey machine that will remain will be located adjacent to the Circulation Desk. At the end of the calendar year, this machine will be eliminated, and we will be entirely self-serve for standard copying. (We will continue to mediate color copying, etc.)
In order to use our new self-serve options, patrons will need to add value to either a U Card or a copy card. Cash value may be added at the ValuePort on the 2nd floor. (Eventually, our users will also have the option of adding value online for a $2.00 transaction fee.) Unaffiliated users may purchase copy cards for $1.00 at the ValuePort.
I expect you'll have questions. Please let me know as they come up!
Good luck and thanks!
