Print from a Mac or Macbook OS X 10.10

Printing - Mac or Macbook OS X 10.10
When printing on campus, you send your output to a holding queue. You can then print from this queue at
any of the printers or MFDs, using your ID card or username and password to login.
MFDs
MFDs are Multi Function
Devices capable of
photocopying and
scanning, as well as
printing selected items
from your print queue.
Some MFDs also offer A3
and colour printing.
Printers
Printers print ALL of the
items from your print
queue. You can delete
items from your queue
using the e-pay Print
Manage system (see
overleaf). Some printers
also offer colour print
options.
There are printers/MFDs in or near all PC classrooms, clusters, and in public areas, and also on each
floor of the library.
