Go Green, Print Lean


On Tuesday the Library began a new printing system.  After sending your documents to the printer, you must log in at the printer and select your print jobs.  You can log in to and print your documents from any printer on any floor of the library.  For more information, please see the FAQs on the Library web site: http://www.dom.edu/library/PrintingFAQ.html.

A few things to remember:

• Printing is still free for current Dominican students, faculty and staff.  Even though the printer screen shows costs of 10 cents/page, Dominican students, faculty and staff will not be charged.

• You log in to the printer with the same username and password as you use to log in to the library computers and to your email.  Remember to log off at the printer, too.

• When printing a PDF, be sure to use the print icon within Adobe.  Using the Adobe icon, rather than your browser’s File-Print option, will ensure that your entire document is sent to the printer.


Using this system helps us all be conscious of how much we’re printing, and helps eliminate unnecessary printing and unclaimed print jobs.  If you have questions about how to use the new system, please ask.

  1. If you really want to encourage green printing, how about putting up some fliers on how to print double-sided. I taught about 5 people from one of my classes, and they were all really interested, so I think people would really hop on board.

  2. Thanks for your comment. It is possible, through the print dialog box preferences, to print double-sided. We encourage everyone to do so. Instructions and reminders around the library are coming soon. In the meantime, if you’re unsure of how to print double-sided, please ask at the reference desk.
