A project team has recommended that beginning in August 2013, student lab printing be better managed to encourage sustainability, reduce waste and control costs. 

This team analyzed the current print environment in the Library and the public labs, researched practices at higher education institutions, defined solution requirements, identified software vendors, requested information including costs from vendors and identified vendor(s) that met requirements.

The project team has recommended that a print management solution be used in the student labs on campus. The team believes this will help:

  • Reduce paper and toner usage waste and to encourage the responsible use of limited resources. Currently approximately 20% of the paper printed in the library and the labs is not claimed by users or is immediately discarded.
  • Put in place a sustainable model for continuing to provide free printing for the majority of printing undertaken by students and to provide a reasonable cost for those who need to purchase additional pages.
  • Allow the college to offer networked color printing in the Library and the Friends 110 Lab.

The project team is collecting feedback on this proposal prior to submitting it to college administration. The recommendation will be submitted to the administration in May with the plan of implementing the program in August 2013.

See the project team's FAQ for more details. Information sessions for the specialty lab coordinators will be held on Wednesday April 24th at 3 pm and Friday April 26th at 11 am. Both sessions will be in Job 312. Anyone who would like to provide additional feedback to the project team is invited to complete this form.
