All departments who require student workers to print as part of their work should have a generic account and must provide it to student workers to cover their work’s printing.
Generic accounts are for various department uses: information sharing, sharing an e-mail account, student’s workers printing without using their personal print quotas…
One generic account will be created per department from this point on. Multiple student workers need to share that department’s generic account.
There will be no person-specific accounts created. Example: Jane Smith in Sociology & Anthropology students will have to use the Sociology & Anthropology generic account. A JaneSmithResearch account will NOT be created.
Departments should ask to have their generic account’s password reset after each term, at the very least, to protect the information within that account. The name of the account will remain the same no matter the user or employer within the department.
There are no LIS charges, at this time, affiliated with generic account printing, so departments should not be concerned about LIS charging grants or any other resources specific to that student’s printing.
Generic account users may not print to public printers, except the plotter.
Generic account users should employ the printers and resources within the department.
o Departments are responsible for monitoring the use of those printers to insure the generic accounts are being used properly.
Bicentennial Hall’s generic accounts users should consult Cathy Ekstrom about usage of and costs for BIH 631C (color printer) and BIH209Plotter.
Departments may confirm generic account information with the Technology Helpdesk. If a department does not have a generic account, they need to request one through the Helpdesk.
Students may determine whether a generic account exists by asking the department coordinator. Upon employment, they should learn whether printing will be required and, if so, what the generic account is.
The Helpdesk may determine whether a generic account exists by asking the department coordinator or checking the list of currently known generic accounts (attached).
Student workers who use their personal quota for work-affiliated printing, only to contact the helpdesk for restoration will no longer receive refunds. All departments must have student workers use their generic account from the start. A student may decide to use his or her personal account for work related printing, if they want to use their quota for such purposes. That would be a personal decision.

Generic accounts should be used by student workers who require on-the-job printing. It is the only method we have available, at this time, to allow student workers to reserve their personal quotas for the scholastic needs.
