New Items for August

Here are new items added during the month of August. Check them out!

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Printing changes coming soon.

Big changes in printing coming soon!!

Beginning soon, documents printed within Stafford Library will print out from our new copiers. This change will require the creation of a temporary username and password each time users are logged into our student computers.


Privacy, efficiency and cost effectiveness are why!

  •  Print jobs are now "on demand". When you are ready to collect your documents, simply enter your username and password at the copier and choose to print. 

  • You can now send multiple documents to be printed at once.

  • You can retrieve all printed documents at once, cutting out the possibility of your research or homework accidentally walking away.

  • This also means that you can select which items to print, minimizing wasted paper and ink.

  • Printing, photocopying and scanning are FREE

Look for more details and instructions soon!


Questions? Our staff is happy to assist and answer any you may have - simply Contact Us or visit the front desk.
