                                the capability of printing a wide range of fonts and point sizes. There is a
                                charge of 4p per side. The default paper size is A4 (29.7cm by 21cm).
                                There are laser printers located on every floor of the Library. When working in
                                the Library, you can collect your print job from any of these printers.

                                lower ground floor and the other in the C120 print room. The default paper
                                size is A4 (29.7cm by 21cm) and the charge is 30p per page.

                                the laser printer, to print the document from the print queue.

                                     print queue.

                          PRINTING PROCEDURE
                          1.   Use any computer, except the print station, to create and edit your
                               document in the normal way.
                          2.   When complete, thoroughly check your document to ensure that it is
                               formatted correctly. Most Windows applications have a Print Preview
                               command that allows you to see exactly how a document will appear
                               when printed.
                          3.   When you are ready to print, use the print command in the software you
                               are using, i.e. the Print option in the File menu or click on the Print
                               button to send your document to the network queue.
                          4.   Go to the print station computer, next to the printer you want to collect
                               your print job from.

                                    and password so that the document(s) you have sent to the print
                                    queue can be listed.
                          5.   Type your username and password at the print station. Then, follow the
                               instructions on the computer screen.
                                    The print station will list your submitted print jobs – ensure that you
                                    have sufficient balance on your printing account to print your work.
                          6.   Select the print job(s) you wish to print, then click on the Print button to
                               release your document(s) to the printer.
                          7.   Once your work is printed, click on the Logout button to log off from the
                               print station.
