Middlebury

 

Using: Print, Copy, Scan & Fax Machines

Printers

Students are given a print quota each term. They may increase their quota by purchasing a cash card at Wilson Cafe, MiddXpress, or the College Store. They may print to public printers, using a print release station.

Students participating in a student organization should request printing instructions from the Student Activities office staff.

Student workers should obtain the department’s generic account information for their work’s printing needs. Printing should occur on the department’s machine. Students should not use their individual accounts, therefore quotas, for work-related printing. Students who opt to do so will not have their quotas reimbursed.

Faculty and staff may print, without limitation, to any machine on campus. Many offices and departments have shared network printers. These can be added to the printer list on any college-owned computer (for personal computers you must use Web Print). The Helpdesk wiki provides instructions on adding a printer to a Mac or a PC .

Guests of the college are those who are not students or employees. They may print by setting up a guest account through printing to guest printers.

Copiers (A Function of Multifunction Machines)

Students may use their print quota for photocopying. They may increase their quota by purchasing additional pages. They may copy on public machines throughout campus.

Students participating in a student organization should consult the Student Activities office staff for guidance.

Student workers should obtain a numeric code to use on their department’s machine. Students cannot use their quotas for work-related copying on those machines. Students who opt to use their quota on public machines for work copies will not have their quotas reimbursed.

Faculty and staff may use any photocopier on campus. Department and public machines will require users to enter their ID number to access the copy function. Copies are charged against their Banner index. Faculty and staff must have their ID number programmed into their department’s multifunction machine(s).

Guests of the college may copy on campus by setting up a guest account.

Scanners

Machines that have a scan function may be used to scan-to-email. The receiving e-mail must be at a college address; the system will not scan to outside addresses. Directions are posted at individual machines. There is no cost to scan.

Fax

Students have access to an outgoing fax machine in The Davis Family Library. Students engaged in a job search may use a fax machine in Career Services, as well. Students may receive faxes through the McCullough Student Center’s mail center. That fax machine’s number is 802-443-2068. There is no charge to students who are faxing.

Faculty and staff must have their ID programmed into their department’s multifunction machine(s) in order to access the fax option. Users will be required to enter their ID number to access their machine’s functions. Placing a fax call is exactly like placing a telephone call.

Report Malfunctioning Machines

If a public printer is not functioning well, it is important that you report the problem immediately by calling x2200 or visiting the Walk-In Helpdesk Center in Davis Family Library 202. This will expedite troubleshooting and the corrective actions to get the machine back on-line.

In addition, reporting the problem swiftly allows the Helpdesk to deactivate the machine so that other jobs may not enter its queue. Refund requests are corroborated by reported problems.

Malfunctioning department machines should be reported directly to SymQuest.

Details and procedures are provided by ITS’ Helpdesk.
