If you have visited the 2nd (main) floor of the Rod lately and sent a print job to the “2 Learning Commons” printer you will notice something new. In order to release your print job you will need to login to the print release station located next to the printer. Logging in will let you view your print queue and select only the jobs you wish to release. The print release station will not only help us reduce waste, it will also allow us to enable “Mobile Print” which will provide printing from personal mobile devices.
