Double-sided Printing in 103 Walter

I'm sure you've all had this question at the desk before. Can I print on both sides? Not on library printers, but I just discovered that students can print double-sided in 103 Walter. A student in 103 explained to me that the default is single-sided printing, but they can switch to double-sided in the print menus.

File > Print > Preferences (or Properties), then change "Print on Both Sides:" to "Yes, Flip Over."

Printers & Value Ports in Walter

Admittedly, this post is as much about testing the BlogShow plugin for photo galleries as it is about providing visual information about the location of printers and value ports in Walter (could be used when directing a patron to a printer/value port).

Basement Uniprint Moved to 204

The basement Uniprint has been moved into the SLC in 204. It is located next to the Mac media production stations, just to the left of the main entrance.

Update on Public Copying and Printing

Update on Public Copying and Printing
From Library Monday Memo 8/25/08

All University Libraries public copying and printing equipment have been upgraded to the new CBORD debiting system. The Health Science Library will be upgrading soon. We continue to experience some transition issues which we hope the U Card office will be able to help us resolve soon. Thanks for your patience as the Libraries make this transition and for your dedication to helping the users get what they need while we are changing system platforms.

The Libraries are no longer selling Library Copy Cards. Faculty and staff that need to purchase a copy card with an EFS budget string should request a card through their departmental accounting office. The copy service has purchased a limited number of $3 courtesy cards and distributed them to public service desks to help users who are struggling in this transition.

Patrons should be directed to the new Value Port to add money to their UCard account or to purchase a new Gopher Gold card for $1 and then add value to that. Value Ports are located in Wilson, Walter, Magrath, Law, and HSL. They are also located in the University dormitories.

The UCard office anticipates that the web interface for adding value with a credit or debit card will be available to the public October 1st. There will be a $2 fee for this service. If University faculty, staff, or students have value stored on their UCard that was deposited via the cash to card machines prior to August 15, 2008, that value must be converted to the new system at the UCard office. Old Library Copy Cards (non-CUFS purchased with cash or a check) or Gopher Gold cards purchased in the cash to cards machines will no longer work in the equipment and must be converted at the UCard Office in Coffman to the new system.

Copy Cards with CUFS printed on them should be returned to their departmental accounting office for a refund. Exception: Library units that have old CUFS copy cards should return them to Amy Boemer, 125 Magrath, with their name and unit. Return any old library courtesy cards with value on them to Amy Boemer, 125 Magrath. The library will get credit for these cards which will then convert to new value.

Changes in the Gopher Gold system

As some of you may be aware, the Gopher Gold system is moving on-line, meaning that money value will no longer be stored physically on a Gopher Gold or UCard. Instead, a user will have a Gopher Gold card that will be linked to a separate University account, reducing the added cost of losing a card (the user will only have to replace the card, not the money stored as well).

This change is to take effect in late July 2008, and current values stored physically on the card will not be recognized in machines by August 2008 (the remainder must be transferred to an online account by May 2009). See the Gopher Gold website for details.

One sign of this change is already apparent: University newcomers are being issued UCards that do not have the stripe for storing money value. Instead, they are being issued a separate Gopher Gold card that they must remember to bring to the Libraries.
