We have a 'multifunctional device' in the entrance area of Hartland House Library & on the ground floor of the New Library. These print, photocopy and scan. You can send jobs to the printers from any of the PCs in both libraries.
Select 'Follow-Me' as your printer.
Make sure the properties are set as you want them. It usually defaults to double-sided (duplex) so if you want to change this to single-sided you will need to go into the printer properties underneath the box where you have selected 'Follow-Me' as your printer. N.B. there is sometimes a short delay before the printer properties box opens up!
Once you've made your changes click on the ok button to exit the printer properties box.
Now press Print in the software that you have the document open in.
Your print job will now be in a queue and you will need to scan your Bod card on either of the printers and press the screen to release it.
To print in colour you will need to select the printer properties under the 'Follow-Me' printer option. N.B. this box can take a little while to load!
Once this is open you can select the 'full color' option.
Click ok to exit the printer properties and then press print to send it to the printing queue.
Go to one of the printers, scan your Bod card and press your print job to release it.
Colour printing is significantly more expensive than black & white printing. If you've only got a few pages that have colour on them we recommend you print them separately using the print page range option and print the rest in black & white.
The larger printer on the left can staple and/or hole punch your document if you set it to do so before you send it to print.
Go to the printer properties underneath the 'Follow-Me' printer option.
Go to the Finishing tab on the left and you will see there are options for Staple and Punch.
Once you have made your selections click ok to close the printer properties box and then click on Print to send your document to the printing queue.
Scan your Bod card on the printer and select your document on the screen to release it.
You can photocopy on both machines in the Library entrance area in Hartland House and the machine on the ground floor of the Tim Gardam Building.
First scan your Bod card to log on and then press 'use copier/device functions' to get into photocopier mode. If you're photocopying several loose pages of paper the quickest way to copy them is to place them face up in the document feeder on the top of the machine. If the originals are double-sided you will need to press the 2-sided >> 2-sided option on the screen before you press the big green start button.
If you need help figuring out the right settings you need come and ask a member of Library staff.
There are 2 ways to scan to e-mail from both of our machines:
We recommend using the photocopying/printing machines to scan as they are much faster and produce high quality images. However we also have some older flatbed scanners connected to various Library PCs. The instructions for each scanner should be on the wall nearby. If you need help using these come and ask us!
Printing and photocopying charges automatically get put on your battels - you don't need to deposit money into an account (N.B. we don't use PCAS in our Library).
When you log on to a Library PC you will see a little green box in the top right corner of the desktop. This will tell you how much you've spent on printing and/or photocopying.
|One sided||Two sided (per side)||One sided||Two sided (per side)|
|Black & White||£0.05||£0.04||£0.10||£0.09|
Scanning is free!
Need to print your essay in a hurry?
You can e-mail your document from your laptop, tablet or phone to email@example.com and then scan one of the printers with your Bod card to release it in a matter of minutes!
N.B. There may be a few minutes delay between e-mailing your document and it appearing on the printer.
