Printing to Public Printers — Minding P’s & Queues Just Got Easier

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Blue PrinterDo 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.

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Woman-PrinterFans 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.

Good news! You can print from your laptop!
