A new initiative on campus will give Drake students more access to printing, copying and scanning, according to a university email sent to students on Aug. 18.
Vicky Payseur, vice president of business and finance, announced that starting today full-time students would be allocated $20 worth of printing, which equals approximately 500 black and white prints.
Part-time students will not receive free prints, but rather they can load money into their Drake student accounts and use their ID cards to access all 17 on-campus printing locations.
All students have to do is swipe their ID cards at any of the locations across campus.
There is also a “hold and release” option for students. According to Payseur’s email, students can send a document to any of the public printers and then go to the location to print it after the document has been entered into the queue. The document will only remain in the queue for 48 hours
With this new printing process, there is also a new sustainability option that is coming. All printing will be done on 30 percent Forest Stewardship Council recycled paper. In addition, all prints will automatically be set as double-sided.
Students who wish to connect their personal computers to a machine or want to find out more about the services offered can visit the Print Services Website at http://oit.drake.edu/print-services.
