Q. How do I print in the library?
Colchester: You can print from any of the PCs in the library. There is one on every floor. Pages to be printed should be sent to managed print, where they will be held in a queue for 8 hours. You can then release them by tapping in to any of the printers in the library with your student card or Essex login, select the "secure print/scan" button, highlight the item to be printed, then select print + delete to release the print job. To print from a USB plug the USB into a PC and follow the steps above.
You can print from a mobile device, by sending an attachment from your Essex email account to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will be converted into a pdf and can be released from the print queue by tapping in to any of the printers in the library. Printing is free for students and staff.
Southend: You can print on the 2nd floor of The Forum. There are 2 printers 1 near the Info Point and the other is in the Open Study Space at the north end of the building.
