Reeves Library has new printers!

Just in time for your return to the semester, CIT has installed new printers on the main and lower levels of the library. Even better news, they will DOUBLE SIDE print.  In fact that is the default, so if you want to single side print, simply select the option to print one-sided.  Another thing to note:  there is no longer a printer in the Alcove area.  The options will be the Main or Lower Level printers.  Happy Printing.

Check Reeves button

Have you noticed while searching in your favorite database that the  button is not doing what you thought it would?  Don’t panic, it’s not you! 

We are experiencing some quirky technical difficulties with this option when checking for links to articles or journals available in print.   While we work on this, there is another option for checking the availability of the article you want:

Simply copy the name of the JOURNAL (found within the description of the article you’ve selected) and paste it into the Locate a Journal search box on the library homepage.  You can get to this search box by opening a tab to the library home page, mouse over Find Resources, and click on Articles and Journals.   You will see the search box near the bottom of the page.

This will get you to the information you need to know!   

And don’t forget, if after checking you find your article is not available through Reeves Library, you can always use the Interlibrary Loan Request an Article form.

windows 7 in the house

Windows 7 has just been installed as the operating system on the computers in the Hound Underground on the lower level of the library. If you felt like you were just getting used to Vista, take heart – it’s still on the rest of the library’s computers.

looking for a scanner?

Then, look no further than the Hound Underground computer lab on the library’s lower level. We’ve got 2 – one hooked up to a PC and the other hooked up to a Mac. Scan to your heart’s content!

double-sided printing in hound underground

Great news – if you’re looking for double-sided printing in the library, look no further than the Hound Underground (downstairs) computer lab! CIT tells us that all print jobs 2 pages or greater in length sent to the printer in that computer lab will automatically print on both sides of the page.

If you’re in another computer area in the library and want double-sided printing, just send your print job to the Hound Underground printer. Its name is :\\gutenberg\ReevesLowerLevelLJ4250.

double-sided printing

It pains us greatly to say that there is currently no printer in the library that can print double-sided. 😦   CIT is working on it, but we hear that it’s probably going to be a good long while before it happens here.

Soooo, in the meantime, there is a document posted on AMOS by CIT that lists campus printers that can print double-sided (clicking on the link will require you to log into AMOS to see the list). Those that are designated under the “Employee” column as being Public Access will be the printers available for general use.
