  2. Note the name of your workstation. (When you go to pay for and pick up your printouts, you'll need to find your workstation name on the print station screen.)
  3. When you are ready to pick up your print jobs, proceed to a print station. Print jobs will stay on the print station for up to two hours.

  2. Select your job by clicking on it once. Note the number of pages and the charge to print.
  3. Click Print to release the print job to the Printer.
  4. Collect your printouts.

Money Saving Tips

  • If available, use Print Preview and only print the pages you need. Print Preview can usually be found under the File menu.
  • Save your work to a USB driveĀ or your Pages folderĀ instead of printing.
  • Most databases, such as LexisNexis Academic and Academic Search Premier, allow you to email search results instead of printing.
