If you've tried to print something in the LRC recently, you may
have noticed that a new system is in place. Instead of choosing
a specific printer, you can now send your print jobs to the
FollowMe cloud - your job won't print (or take your print
credits!) until you release it with your ID card. There are
full instructions available in the LRC or you can ask any LRC
staff member for help. 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.
If you require any assistance, ask a member of the LRC staff or
an IT technician.
Literature Easter revision classes
If you are a first year English Lit student
or a second year student retaking the F661 exam, you can sign
up for one of two revision sessions to be held on Wednesday, 8th April. Each
session is two hours long and you can choose between morning
and afternoon (both sessions will be identical). See here for more details.
Spaces are limited and you must sign up with Ms Melville before
Friday, 27th March.
LRC Food and
Food and drink (other than
bottled water) are not allowed in the LRC or LRC2 and you must
leave any cold food and drink that you have with you at the
front counter upon entering either of these spaces. Hot food is
not permitted in the LRC at all. We understand that you need
sustenance and are happy to hold your place for up to ten
minutes while you step outside for a break but any student who is caught with
food or drink at their PC or study desk will receive an
incident report and be asked to leave for the rest of the
day. Students who receive multiple incident reports face
Special attention is drawn to the Group Study Room,
which has been left a mess of sweet wrappers, crisps, crumbs
and fizzy drink spills on several occasions recently. Not only
is this against the LRC’s Code of Conduct but it creates an
unpleasant working environment for other students. Please work
with the LRC staff to help us continue to provide the best
possible environment for study.
