Add New Suggestion
(Oct 28/11) Id just like to address the new printing system (PrintSmart), which requires a MacID. Its unclear to me how we can use this system for research groups --- for example, we used to be able to purchase a copy card which could be shared between students in one group for necessary photocopying. Now we have no ability to share printing resources and no way (as far as I know) to use a research account to copy journal articles needed for research.
Library response: The first phase of the Printsmart initiative was to move students from the old process of card payments to the Equitrac system. This was completed in August of 2010. The next phase, which will begin before Christmas, is to convert all faculty and staff to the system across campus. Each individual user will have a profile built to include the ability to charge print costs to an account number and use any available system on campus. This includes the ability to use the systems in the library and roll-up charges to their account number just as you would in your office location. These charges will be uploaded to FAS on a monthly basis. In the meantime, anyone wishing to add value through an account number can contact Printsmart at extension 22111 as they can charge departments directly and allocate the amount to each user as requested (Oct 28/11)
