Pharos and Lab Closure October 14

When you think of Gleeson Library, do you think of printers?

Most of the students who enter through our gates do, and I can’t blame them: I’m practically obsessed with the printers in the library since they tend to be the most used on campus.

You may have noticed that the campus has switched to printing through the photocopiers, a system dubbed Pharos. You may have also noticed the computer lab in the Reference department of Gleeson Library is still running on the old system, the retro GoPrint.

But no more!

On Monday, October 14, 2013 (the first day of Fall Break), the computer lab in the Reference Department of Gleeson Library will be closed so we can take out GoPrint, put in Pharos, and make sure everything is working correctly. We will have two dedicated Pharos black and white printers in the lab and one job-selection screen.

Once the equipment is installed and the computers are correctly configured, you can send print jobs from anywhere on campus (personal laptop/desktop or computer lab) and you can pick them up anywhere on campus (just find the nearest Pharos/Ricoh brand copier/printer)—the computer lab in the Reference Department will be just one more location you can do both.

Happy printing!
