Weinberg Library Introduces the Uniprint System for Laser Printing
Print pay stations will be located in the Pro Deo Room Lab on the Weinberg Library's 1st Floor and in the Electronic Indexes area on the 2nd Floor.
Financially: Each academic year, 300 of a student's laser prints will be free. Students will receive an allocation of 200 pages at the beginning of the Fall semester and an additional 100 pages at the beginning of the Spring semester. During the pilot phase, September 2000, students will have up to an additional 300 copies. After use of the free copies, the cost of all printing or photocopying will be 7 cents a page. This represents a decrease in current photocopying charges from 10 cents to 7 cents.
Financially: You will save 3 cents on every photo/microcopy. This savings will help balance out the seven cents laser print.
Investment: Money saved on supplies can go to upgrading equipment and/or acquiring more databases. Pease note that a second laser printer, a new HP Laser 8000, was added to the Pro Deo Room Lab.
There is no cost during the 300 page pilot phase (September 2000) or until you use the 300 page allocation (200 pages fall semester, beginning in October 2000 and an additional 100 pages in the spring semester).
You can select just the pages you need, e-mail your results to your own e-mail account, print from your own printer, save them to a disk or print from a dot-matrix machine.
Yes. As more journals and resources are available electronically, many colleges and universities have established a balance between adding full-text and paying for laser printing. The Weinberg Library has chosen a break-even model for laser printing that still gives students free copies and provides a cost savings for photo/microcopying.
