Printing: How do I print in the library?

How do I print in the library?

Hale, Math/Physics, and Weigel Architecture Libraries

Printing at these libraries is similar to how you would print at home – but with a few more steps.

   * If the item is in pdf format, click on the printer icon within Adobe Acrobat.
   * If the item is not in pdf, look for a link that will reformat it for printing.
      Select this if available, and then click on File and then Print.
  * If printing in b&w - click Print - the default printer is Campus Black and White Printing.
  * If printing in color, change the printer to Campus Color Printing.
  * A Pharos box will open and ask for a name.
     *  Type in your eID. Name all of your print jobs your eID.
     *  You'll be able to distinguish between multiple print jobs by looking at the the time the job was sent.
     *  If you decide not to print one of the jobs, it will automatically delete from the print spool in 2 hours.
  * Go to one of the InfoCommons print stations
      * Your Cat Cash funds will not display at the print station or be available for printing until you swipe your K-State ID
         Card once to associate the card with your eID.
      * You can print by swiping your K-State ID Card; since you named the job your eID, no login is necessary.        
      * Or, you can print by logging in with your eID and password.        
      * Highlight your print job and click the Print icon.
      * It will deduct the fees from your account.
 * Community members, see Library Help, 2nd floor Hale Library for printing assistance.
