Suggestion

(Nov 9/11) Its not helpful that the printers default is set to double-sided. I know that it helps save paper, but the students still have to pay for the number of pages and most classes require that assignments NOT be double-sided. When students forget to set the printer to single sided, and have to re-print it, it costs them more and it wastes more paper. Please change this back so that the default is single sided.

Library response:

Thanks for your comments.  The change to a default double sided printing came not only from the University’s Sustainability initiative but also from our library users asking us to default to double sided printing from our online suggestion box.

With our new PrintSmart system our users have more control over what and how they are printing and copying documents.   When you are sending your print job, you can select single sided from the print properties tab.   We are happy to help you and we don’t want you spending extra money on copies you don’t want, so please ask any of our staff to assist you and we can ensure you get your copies the way you want them. 

Thanks again for your comments.
