Print Management System


General Information

A print management system was installed in the Library Computer Lab at the beginning of the May 2002 semester.  During the summer of 2007, the printers were updated to two monochrome HP LaserJet 4250 printers and an HP Color Laser 4700 printer.

As with the print management system in the Library, the print management system in the lab continues to require that a Cash Card is inserted in a card reader in order for print jobs to be released to the printer.  The initial card cost of $1.00 provides 90-cents of print value.  Additional value of up to $5.00 can be stored on a cash card.  The cards can be purchased (and additional value added) from the vending machine located on the main floor of Carmichael Library near the elevators.

Cost to Print

The current cost of printing in the Library Computer Lab is:

  • black and white from either of the HP LaserJet 4250 printers:
    8-cents per page
  • color (or black and white) from the HP Color Laser 4700 printer:
    25-cents per page

Please note: these costs are subject to change.  Changes will be posted in the lab.
