Copying, printing and scanning is available in all libraries. Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) across the University allow you to print, scan and photocopy documents.
To send a job to the printer (MFD):
- open the document you wish to print and click on the FILE tab on the far left of the ribbon and
- choose Print to bring up the print menu.
From the drop-down arrow, make sure to choose MFD-PULL-BW if you are printing in black and white, and MFD-PULL-COLOUR if you are printing in colour.
Click here to see printing charges. The printer network allows you to send jobs from any classroom PC and retrieve them from any MFD printer on campus. You don’t have to necessarily print in the site where you sent the job from!
Retrieving the job(s) from the printer
In Taylor, there are 4 MFDs on floor 1, located opposite the Issue Desk. Once you have sent your document(s) for printing, login to the MFD by scanning your card on the reader. You can also tap the screen and enter your University username and password manually. Tap the Pull Print icon. Your name and print credit will appear on the top left, just above the list of jobs you have sent for printing.
You can either ‘Print all’ from the top right, in which case the MFD will start printing all jobs in reverse order (the last one sent will be printed first),
or, you can highlight one at a time and choose ‘Print’.
You can use the same method to Delete or see information about individual print jobs. Just highlight and chose the desired action. Every time you print a title it disappears from your list. You can log off and come back to your printing later as jobs stay in the queue for four days.
When you are finished, go Back and Logout. Remember to top up your printing budget if you have more printing coming up! For more information on paying for printing click here.
Sending print jobs from your laptop and mobile device
- Find information on how to configure your personal device to the printing network here. This is a one-time setting and you won’t have to repeat it every time you send jobs from your laptop!
- Also see the guide about printing from a mobile device when working on the move. WebPrint allows you to send jobs from your phone or tablet and collect from a networked MFD/printer.
We also have a podcast on using the MFDs in Taylor. You will find it under the My Zone tab on the Library website.
