Macdonald DeWitt Library at SUNY Ulster

Printing at the Library: Home

A quick how-to for printing from library computers.

Get Your SUNY Ulster ID!!

After clicking print, you need to swipe your SUNY Ulster ID to retrieve your print job.

Printing from a library computer

1. Use your SUNY Ulster username and password to log on to one of the computers. Your printing account is tied to your computer login. When you sit down at a computer in the library, make sure that you have pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL and logged in with our username and password.

2. Print as usual. The default printer is the Toshiba print/scan/copy machine located in front of the Circulation Desk. To print in color, you must select LibraryColor as your printer.

3. Within four hours, get your SUNY Ulster ID and go to the printer. Swipe your ID to authenticate. Press "Select Jobs" then "Print" what you need. WAIT a few seconds. Your printouts will be out soon. Remember to use the "Access" button to log out. 

Printing a PowerPoint presentation

Save paper and money by not printing your PowerPoint presentations at all, or printing multiple slides to a page.

Instead of full page slides, select "6 Slides Horizontal." The slides are still legible but you'll use a lot less paper and toner.

If the slides have a dark background, use the Design tab to change the overall colors of the slides and remove a dark background.
