For On Campus Students

There are two printers available in the library, you can use these to scan documents, photocopy and print. All printing jobs are sent to these printers. You will need your student card to release your print jobs. Alternatively, you can use the touch screen on the printer to type in your Username and Password.
In Lake Macquarie, both printers will print in B&W and in colour. In Sydney, one printer is B&W only, while the other prints colour.

Instructions to Release Print Jobs
Print jobs are not free – they have a small fee per page. See price list below.
To release your print job at the printer, simply tap your card across little logo that looks like an ID card – this will log you into your account. You have two options here to release print job, you can choose either Release Print Jobs (green bar & button at the top of the screen), or press the Print release button to see the list of print jobs sent to the printer and release from this list. When you press Select and Release Print Jobs you will see what you have sent to the printer, and what it is going to cost. From this page you can also see the option to delete your print job.

Please note: You must select Colour from your computer before printing if you want to print in colour as the photocopier automatically prints black and white. To select colour: File – Print – Printer properties- change output colour to – Colour

Scanning via Photocopier is free. Scans can be sent to your Avondale email or to your Avondale OneDrive account. When you log in with your ID card, the system automatically registers your Avondale email – there is no need to type it in.
