Thanks to the Office of Technology Services (OTS) there is a new printer located in Galvin Library and this printer is a big deal – literally. Students can print large poster size prints from the plotter and all sizes in between poster-sized and regular printing. There are some instructions and directives to follow. For example:

  • The plotter’s computer is in front of the Research Help Office on the upper level. It is directly connected to the printer (so it is not a print release station for other printers).
  • The computer can only print PDF files to the plotter. Adobe Reader is the only software installed on the machine. Access your print file using a USB drive, email or Google drive.
  • The cost is $5 per linear foot; print prices are also listed in the “Finances” tab in Banner.
  • The max size of a print is 36 inches.
  • To save money, the print job can be rotated to landscape mode, if the long edge is 36″ or less. Use the directions taped to the table to change the print settings.
  • Students must make sure to log off the computer when they are finished

For all questions and if you need assistance, ask at the OTS Support Desk.
