Printing: laptop access to Library printers

Can I print from my laptop here in Green to a Green Library printer?

Yes you can. All the directions to set up your laptop for accessing networked printers on Campus are on the Printing web site. The box at the side, Printer Setup Instructions, tells about each system configuration. The list of printer names on Campus, including the Libraries, is at View Printers for: on this page. However, the library list of room locations for particular printer names is on the Libraries' website.

Color printing

Question: Where can I find a color printer?

Answer: Meyer Library has 2 HP color laser printers, Leela and Fry, on the first and second floor of Meyer. They also have a Canon i950 printer at Meyer. This is a photo-quality inkjet printer. It costs $0.75 per page. Alternative print media (transparencies and photo quality paper) are available at an additional cost. Please look for the sign or ask a consultant for assistance the first time you use the color printer.

Q&A: Printers, Publishers and Booksellers in Early English Books [ESTC]

Question: I am researching the life and work of Alice Warren, an English printer in London in the 17th Century. When I do an "IMPRINT" search for her name in either the ESTC or Early English Books Online in the Databases, I get no more than about 8 items. I know that this can't be right. Is there somewhere else I can look?

Answer: You need to use the 4th volume of Wing's Short-Title Catalogue, which cross-indexes all the printers and booksellers in Wing, 1641-1700. Checking Alice Warren in that volume, one sees that she was also known as Alice Norton, and indicates that she was probably also responsible for the imprints of the two John Nortons in the list, who were her husband and son, respectively. Also, her listings under Alice Warren, [her second husband was Thomas Warren]are more numerous than the 8 items you already have from ESTC and Early English Books Online. This index also gives the bibliographic citations for the sources of the biographical details included in the listings. There is a parallel volume which indexes the printers and booksellers for Pollard and Redgrave [in Volume 3], covering imprints from 1475 to 1640. None of this information is currently available in either the ESTC or Early English Books Online.
