Greening of Color Printing

In an effort to reduce paper & toner waste as well as save students money, we’re conducting a pilot project on the color printer in the Learning Commons. We’ve installed a print management system on the color printer which will allow students to send print jobs to the color printer, where the jobs will wait in a “queue”. Students can then choose which print jobs to actually print out (or delete what they don’t need) at the Print Release Station next to the color printer.

Now, if you accidentally hit the print button or need to make changes to your document, you only pay for the pages you actually print out, because you’ll choose exactly what to print out. This will also make it possible to send multiple jobs to the queue and print them all at once—no more getting up and leaving your computer unoccupied every time you print something.

Questions or Comments? Please let someone at the Learning Commons Information Desk know.
