Printing in the Library

October 27, 2009

As of this fall, DML has four new printers in the library: two in the BACC on the Lower Level and two on the Ground Floor. These new printers allow printing on both sides, which will definitely reduce the amount of paper being used.  Directions for printing on both sides can be found here: Instructions for double-sided printing.
