Print from Library Computers

To print a document from Microsoft Word (or other Microsoft Office programs):

Step 1: Open your document and be sure it’s ready to be printed.

Step 2: Click on File in the top left-hand corner of your document or the round Office button in the top left-hand corner of the screen.

Step 3: Move down and click Print in the menu. This will bring up the ‘Print’ dialogue box.
 Choose how many copies of your document you need.
 Choose which printer to use (B&W, Color)
 Choose whether you want to print all pages or only certain pages.

You can also change the orientation of the print from portrait to landscape.

You’ll see, on the right, a preview of what your printed document will look like.

Step 4: When you’re happy with your settings, click Print.

A dialogue box should appear telling you how many pages and how much it will cost to print them; if all is as you expect, click on okay.

The print job will be sent to the printer manned by library staff. Let staff at the circulation desk know you sent a print; staff will unlock the print job to print for you.

To print from a web page:

Step 1: Right-click the mouse on the web page you want to print and select Print. OR left-click on the three dots on the top right-hand corner of your browser. This will open up print preview.

Step 2: Click on the printer you want to print from (B&W, Color). Then, choose your preferences such as Orientation and Pages. You can scroll or click through your pages in the preview to determine which pages you want; list pages in the box, separated by commas, or list as a page range, e.g. 1, 2, 6-8.

Step 3: When you have chosen your print settings, click on Print.

A dialogue box should appear telling you how many pages and how much it will cost to print them; if all is as you expect, click on okay.

The print job will be sent to the printer manned by library staff. Let staff at the circulation desk know you sent a print; staff will unlock the print job to print for you.

Note: Some web pages have a special link to a ‘printer friendly’ version of the page. If so, this is usually the best way to print them. Follow the same instructions to print off the page.

If print commands are not working from the web page, hold down left mouse button and run cursor over the text and images you want to print; release the left button and click on the right mouse button to COPY. Then, open a Microsoft WORD document; place the cursor on the blank document, right-click the mouse and left-click on PASTE. Then, follow printing instructions for a Word document, listed above.
