A heads up that we will be testing a print management system option for releasing print jobs on the Lib Circ printer at Main Circ.
LIS is developing a plan for rolling out print management. The system, which uses PaperCut to manage print jobs, will require the release of print jobs via a control panel/release “station”. The print management system is planned for the management of public printing, but we are testing this on a heavily used departmental printer so that we can better evaluate the system.
Why is LIS implementing print management?
To reduce printing costs
To reduce printing waste (and help the environment)
To give the user control over when a print job is printed out
The test will begin at noon on Monday 2/16 and end on Friday 2/20.
During the test phase you will be required to release the print job whenever you print to the Lib Circ printer. The release station will be the computer adjacent to the book drop cabinet.
Releasing print jobs is log-in specific. To release the print job you will need to enter the username and password associated with the computer you printed from. I will post the username/password for the front desk computers at the release station for easy reference.
We need your feedback to test this system. Try it and let us know what you think! You can post your thoughts and comments on this blog post, or feel free to pass your thoughts on to me verbally, by email, or by leaving a note on my desk.
Many thanks! Let me know if you have any questions.
