Do you print at the College libraries? At any of our public computing labs? If so, on your next visit, expect a streamlined list of printer choices offering expanded locations where you can go to release your print job(s). It’s easier and more flexible!
Look for two new print queues — Library_Printers and Non_Library_Printers — that are now available for use. (FollowMeBW will be retired.)
Remember… For fastest results, print directly from a lab computer. Visit go/howtoprint to view our updated instructions on how to print to a public printer.
Fans of Follow-Me Printing will be happy to know we have changed the print queue name, making it easier to remember. When submitting your print job, look for FollowMeBW which has replaced Virtual BlackandWhite, effective 10/4/13.
Students, if you haven’t yet tried “Follow-Me” you’re making your printing life more difficult than it needs to be. Visit go/followme to learn more or check out our earlier blog post. This time saver allows you to print to a single print queue, then go to any participating print release station to release your print job(s).
Remember… for fastest results, use Follow-Me Printing on a lab computer.
I am writing with good news concerning your print quota. Based on student feedback, we have decided that you will be able to roll over your print allowance from term to term until you graduate (or depart) from Middlebury.
This means that the amount you have in your account as of the end of May will be added to your fall quota. A first year student who ends the spring term with $5 in her account will have $30 upon her arrival on campus for the fall semester. A fourth-year student with $1 in his account will start the fall with $51. For those attending Language Schools, you will see the roll-over appear in your summer allotment.
We hope this change to our policy will help make the new printing policy less expensive for you, as it will allow you to cover the costs of printing for a print-heavy year with savings you might enjoy in a year when you have less printing.
