There is a new printing system in the LRC! Instead of choosing a specific printer, you should now select FollowMe. This will send your print job to a cloud, where it will be held for up to 24 hours or until you release it. To release a print job, you will need to swipe your ID card at one of the LRC printers (just like swiping an Oyster card). You can collect your card from the LRC counter to do this at any time but please bear in mind that, during busy periods, there may be a queue for the printers - please manage your time accordingly and be prepared to come back later if necessary. Print jobs will be held for 24 hours, so you can even send your job in the morning and print it off at the end of the day!
Things to note: you can
release your print jobs at either of the two LRC printers but
only Printer 2
will print in colour. After you select 'print', a confirmation
box will pop up confirming how many print credits you'll be
using - you need to click 'OK' before you can release your job.
Your print credits
will only be taken once you release your print
job. You can still cancel your job(s) until then.
All printing is double-sided by default - make sure you select
'single-sided' if this is your preference. If you require any
assistance, please ask a member of the LRC staff or an IT
