Colour Printing

Colour printing is now available in the Library from the computers on Level 1, including the computer with Plant File installed. Hopefully, the computers on Level 2 will also have colour printing enabled soon.

Select the colour printer (E114A Colour) before you send your job to the printer. The default for colour printing is one sided printing. The colour printer is the Xerox machine near the window in the Photocopy Room on Level 1.

One thing to note. If you've selected the colour printer, but some pages in your document are text only, the whole job will be charged as colour printing.

To get around this, select the colour pages only (under Page Range when selecting printing preferences) to send to the colour printer.

The black and white text pages can then be sent to the black and white printer.

Colour printing rates are the same as those in the Student Learning Centre.

A4 single sided = $0.60
A4 double sided = $1.08
A3 single sided = $1.20
A3 double sided = $2.16
