Last week the Kirkwood Library on the Cedar Rapids Campus received a second computer station to be used for express printing. We offer these express printing stations for use in intervals of 5 minutes or less (longer projects should use other computers) to quickly print word documents, PowerPoints, or websites needed for class and to keep the line moving. The basic rule of thumb is if you have to edit or type you can use one of our 24 desktops or check out a laptop for in library use at the Circulation Desk. Before we often have had a line at the express printing station from 10 minutes before until the hour, so we hope this second station will speed the line up, so far it seems to be working.
Also a change with the start of the new semester, in order to consistently track copy/printing use across campus all library computers (including the 2 express printing stations) require you to log in with your K number and password. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we adopt these changes and get the new semester started.
