The following are some hints to make your visit to the Library Student Computer Laboratory easier and more pleasant. If there are any hints you wish to see here, please let us know.
Print management is in effect at the present time. This means that each student is given 300 pages or $30 to use for budgeting their printing over the semester. Ten cents will be deducted from the $30 total each time you print a page. If you deplete your budget before the semester ends, you may request additional pages at the University Center website (http://www.kean.edu/~uca).
How to Print with Printing Management
Click on Microsoft Office button and click Print.
Click on the Print icon in the upper left-hand corner.
OCS sign-in screen will come up. Type in your Kean/Google e-mail and password.
Click "Send to Print Station."
AT THIS POINT, YOU MAY CONTINUE WORKING AND SENDING DOCUMENTS TO THE PRINT QUEUE. YOU MAY ALSO GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR PRINT QUEUE TO PRINT YOUR DOCUMENTS AS FOLLOWS:
Opening the Print Management Queue
Click Alt B to bring up the print queue and type in your Kean/Google e-mail ID and password.
Highlight the documents you wish to print and click on "Proceed to Print." The last document you send to the print queue will be on the bottom.
If you wish to delete any documents from your queue, highlight the documents and click Delete.
If your Account Balance is Low
If you need additional pages, please go to www.kean.edu/~uca and click on Page Request. Fill out the form, including the number of pages desired. Keep in mind that it takes 24 hours for the request to be fulfilled.
Unless you are assigned to print out an article, it would be better for the environment if you saved your article to your USB drive or sent it to yourself by e-mail. Some databases, such as EBSCO, have space available to store your articles.
Uploading Documents to Google Docs
You may also upload your document to Google Docs. To do this, save your article to your USB drive. Go to your Google Start Page and click on Google Docs at the top of the page. Click on Upload at the upper left and browse to your USB drive for your article. Click on the article and save to Google Docs.
