In an attempt to improve the efficiency of printing on campus, Campus Technology Services has recently upgraded the Pharos Uniprint system to the latest version. Pharos allows you to print from your personal computers to general access computer lab and some departmental lab printers on campus.
For those that are new to Pharos, you can install the software by visiting our Personal Printing page. Installation instructions are available for Mac and Windows computers.
For those that have had Pharos installed on your computer before, you will need to remove the old version first before installing the current version. If you’re unsure on how to remove Pharos, we have instructions for both Mac and Windows computers.
If you have any question or concerns about printing with Pharos, please contact the Help Desk at email@example.com or 315-312-3456.
The Penfield Computer lab in 100A Penfield will now be open 24 hours starting tonight, 12/1 through 4:30pm, 12/12.
Penfield Library and CTS have worked on opening the lab 24 hours during the last two weeks of the semester to allow additional workspace for students needing to complete classwork. This will be in addition to the adjacent 24 Hour Room. The Penfield Lab area will be designated as quiet work space, while the 24 Hour Room will be designated for group work.
During the period from 12am – 8am, students may enter Penfield Lab from the same outside doors they would use to enter the actual 24 hour room on the west side of the building. Penfield Lab will be accessible from the doors in the hallway leading into the 24 Hour Room.
There will be no entry to the actual Library lobby and upper levels from Penfield Lab.
There is now a printer in the Penfield Lab that will be available to use from 11:30pm – 8am through December 12th while Penfield Lab stays open 24 hours. Select “Penfield Lab 24Hr Queue” from the list of available printers.
Please use the Lobby printers during the day, from 7:45am-11:45pm. Select “Penfield Lobby Printers” from the list of available printers.
You may also use the 24 Hour Room, “Penfield24HourQueue” printer as needed.
All printers are configured to work with your allocated print quota.
We hope this change in hours will be beneficial. This is a pilot project, and your suggestions will help us make improvements for the future. If you have any feedback, good or bad, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know!
CTS has made some changes to the printing in Marano Campus Center 206. Anyone using that room for the Fall 2014 semester should be aware.
The computers in Marano 206 are now set up to print to the printers in room 207, across the hall. This is based on low utilization of the previous 206 printer and the need to distribute printing across campus in a different way to maximize resources.
While using the computers in 206, faculty, staff and students will be able to pick the default room 207 black and white printer or the room 207 color printer. Printouts can be retrieved in 207.
Last fall, the Shineman Center opened with one general access quick print station in room 188. Once the station was fully operational, we quickly heard that one station was not enough. We are happy to announce that CTS and Auxiliary Services have jointly identified space near the Fusion Cafe area of Shineman for two quick print stations.
The existing print station that was in room 188 has been moved near the stairwell behind the Fusion Cafe. We have identified this print station with the name of “Beaker.” The other print station is also in this same area. Its name is “Bunsen.”
You can see the new locations in the floor plan below. The “You are here” marker designates the previous room 188 location.
Each station has a computer and printer. The “Beaker” station also includes a phone in case there are any issues that need to be called in to the Help Desk (x3456).
We’d like to also remind you that printing to many campus printers from your own device is available. Print drivers can be downloaded from the “CTS Personal Printing” page.
