Printing and Copying

 

For Faculty and Staff

About Printing at Carthage

  • The Canon printers are multi-function devices that allow you to print, copy, scan, and email a document.
  • All of these devices are connected to the campus network. A print job can be sent as described below and then released at any of the Canon printers.
  • To use the devices, the user must have a valid Carthage username and password.
  • A valid Carthage ID card will allow a user to swipe in, making printing and copying simpler.
  • Wifi printers are not allowed on campus.
  • Faculty and staff are assigned a department to which printing/copying is automatically billed. 
  • The costs of printing are as follows:
    • Black/white single-sided: $.05 per page
    • Black/white double-sided: $.03 per page
    • Color: $.25 per side (Color is available on a specific printer in the library and in the mailroom.)

Locations of Printers

All members of the Carthage Community may use the Canon all-in-one printers located across campus. These printers may be found is the following locations:

  • Hedberg Library: One color printer and three black and white printers are located in the upper level of the library and one black-and-white printer is in the lower level of the library, at the bottom of the west staircase.
  • Lentz Hall: One black-and-white printer is located in the lobby on floor 200 of Lentz Hall.

Uninstall UniFlow

If you downloaded a printer driver or client called UniFlow previous to Fall 2016, it will no longer function. Please consult the instructions below to uninstall the previous client/drivers.

Faculty and Staff Printing, Copying, and Scanning

All Carthage faculty and staff are assigned a departmental cost center. When an employee logs in to any printer on campus, that cost center will be applied to their print or copy job. If a user is associated with more than one department, they will have the option to choose a cost center that applies to this particular print job. All printing is then paid for by each campus department. Costs per page are the same as those listed above. Printing in the mailroom costs less, and any print or copy job over 50 pages should be taken there. Printing on non-standard paper (resume, card stock, labels, odd sizes, etc.) should also be done in the mailroom.

Faculty and staff may print in the following ways:

 

EMAIL your print job

Send an email to printing@carthage.edu from your Carthage email account with the document you want printed as an attachment in the email. Make sure that the document is formatted as 8 1/2” x 11” (letter). Release your print job at the printer. Shared printers are set up to print in black and white, double-sided as default. 

Faculty and staff will need to wait for a return email from PaperCut and to click on the emailed link for the print job to be billed to the correct department. The email will look like this:

PAPERCUT CLIENT

Faculty and staff with Carthage-owned computers may want to have the PaperCut Client installed on their machines to print directly from all software platforms to the shared multi-function printers.  All newly deployed fac/staff computers will have the PaperCut client installed. Please email help@carthage.edu to request the client on your computer.

There is no cost associated with scanning, but one does need a Carthage username and password to log in to the machine.

PLEASE NOTE SCANNING LIMITS: Limit scanned files to 50 pages or less at 300x300 dpi if using the feeder, and no more than 10 pages if scanning from the glass.

Office and Lab Printing

Office Printing

Printers for individual faculty are generally discouraged and are not supported by Library and Information Services. Any individual printer deemed absolutely necessary must be maintained at the department’s expense per the following guidelines:

  • Must be USB-attached to the individual PC.
  • Will not be connected to the College network.
  • Will not be connected through wifi and will not emit a wifi signal.
  • Must be tagged as a Carthage-owned asset.

LIS does not provide assistance with ordering, setting up, connecting, re-connecting, or troubleshooting individual printers. Purchasing advice is available by contacting CDWG and asking for pricing for Carthage College. CDWG will bill your department directly. Some hardware repair and troubleshooting is provided by Environmental Innovations (www.4anyprinter.com) as long as the device meets the following requirements:

  • Hewlett Packard (HP) brand
  • Laser (not injet) technology
  • Uses replacement toner cartridges from Environmental Innovations

Lab Printing

Some labs on campus may have printers associated with them, and printing to those devices is generally restricted and regulated by the department that maintains the lab. Likewise, printing to shared office printers other than the Canon devices is restricted and regulated by the offices that maintain them.

Please email help@carthage.edu if you have any questions.

Printing and Copying at the Mailroom

The Carthage College Mailroom in Lentz Hall, room 103 can print and copy special projects. The mailroom provides additional services such as stapling, colored or special paper, booklets, etc. 

The mailroom does have a walk-up Canon copier/printer that is same as any other copier/printer on campus. It is open for all to use with their Carthage credentials, costs the same as the other all-in-one machines on campus, and the cost is deducted from the user’s departmental account. See the Mailroom Services webpage for further information on available services.

Student Organization Printing, Copying, and Scanning

Student organizations may request a print card to be used by the members of that organization. These requests should be completed by the person who will take responsibility for the card. LIS will provide that person with a card and an ID number to use when printing. That person may allow users in the organization to borrow that card at their own discretion. The organization will be billed for printing and copying.

Please use this Copy Print Card Request Form to ask for a student organization print card. You will be required to log in with your Carthage credentials. Please allow up to seven business days for the creation of your card.

The organizational card allows for printing from Carthage computers (e.g. library computers) and copying at any of the copier/printers. The card must be present to use the copier/printers. The card does not enable printing via email or from personal computers.

If your card is lost or you forget your assigned ID number, please email help@carthage.edu immediately to obtain a replacement card.

Guest Printing, Copying, and Scanning

Going Paperless - A Green Statement

Carthage encourages paperless communication of all kinds and provides technologies to facilitate electronic document sharing and storage. The cost of printing and copying on campus directly competes with funding for other resources such as research assets, technology, infrastructure, and much more. By printing less, each person is helping Carthage to not only be greener and better stewards of the environment, but are also helping us to reduce costs so we can provide better resources for the education of our community. Please visit this page on Sustainability at Carthage for more information. If you have questions or ideas about going paperless in your classes, your office, or any other context, please contact Carol Sabbar (csabbar@carthage.edu) about options and tools.
