On Feb. 19, an email from Director of Public Services and Faculty Librarian Amanda Darby informed students about a new reduced-contact printing method for students on campus during the spring semester.
Students are advised to email the documents they wish to print to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After sending their documents, students will immediately receive an auto-reply indicating that their message has gone through and a subsequent email once their documents are ready for pickup.
Currently, only black and white printing will be available with a limit of 20 pages per day.
Every document will print with a cover sheet and the library print email will be purged regularly to protect student privacy.
This method was established after previous updates Miller Library has made as a result of the pandemic.
“We look forward to returning to more traditional printing in the fall. For now, this method keeps everyone safer and increases convenience for you,” Darbysaid in the email.
Students with any questions or printing needs are encouraged to contact the LAT staff via the Ask-a-Librarian form to find a solution to their needs.
