There are several printers available for your use, from any of our various networks.
Our high-volume printers are the wired network printers on the second and third floor. All printers are HP Laser printers.
We currently use a variety of protocols to control all the network printers. These protocols allow printers to be advertised to Mac OS and Linux machines. Windows must manually add printers (depending on your version of MS Windows).
