Tips and Tricks 2: Speed Printing

Running short on time? Email our library printer. You can email a document to one of the printers in the library from your laptop, tablet or smartphone. All you have to do is attach a document to an email and send it to one of the addresses listed below. (1st floor) (2nd floor) (3rd floor)

Once you send your document, head to the printer you sent it to and look for your document. It will come with a cover page with your email address on it so it is easy to find. Happy Printing!
