New ISU Student Printing Procedure

Posted by isulib on May 12, 2012

This also affects printing in the Library; in addition to the info below, from President Bradley’s Update email, printers will no longer be on all floors of the Library!

A new solution for student printing has been implemented by OIT.  Previously, students could print primarily in open computer labs and at the Library. With the new solution, students can send a print job from a computer, wherever they are, to any one of 26 printers that will be located around campus, in academic buildings, public spaces and residence halls.  After downloading a driver for their laptops, students need only print to one of two print queues (black and white, or color), and then find a printer that is convenient to them.  At the printer, students will swipe their ID cards (or enter their ID and password), and select the job they wish to print.  Print jobs will stay in the queue for 24 hours.  This new solution adds convenience and flexibility for students, and enhances campus sustainability efforts, since print jobs will no longer require individual header pages and duplex printing is available.  In the near future, the system will allow printing directly from mobile devices such as smart phones and iPads.  Instructions can be found at:  http://www.indstate.edu/oitlabs/printing/index.html
