One of the problems I face when working on my laptop in the library is printing. I have to put my file on a flash drive or on the Blackboard content system, wait for an open computer (which could take forever), open the file and print it on that computer (which DOES take forever), then print it at one of the print stations. Is there a way I can cut out the middle computer (the extremely slow one) from the process and not take up library computers just to print two pages? It would be helpful if there were a way to send print jobs directly to the library print stations through the VCU Libraries web site. That way I could print my documents from my personal laptop without waiting for a library computer to use.

Good news: laptop users can send print jobs to the Pay4Print workstations in both the Cabell Library and the Tompkins-McCaw Library. Simply download the printer driver(s) you need from the Technology Services Web site. If you need help or have any questions, just contact the Help Desk at 8-2227. Thanks for sending the suggestion, and I hope the information is helpful to you.
