Now you can print to the Pharos Print Cloud. Pharos Release Stations are located in the Classroom Wing 2nd Floor, Student Lounge, Rowland Medical Library Computer Lab & 2nd Floor of the Library
If you want to print from your laptop, you must first: Install VPN on your computer and second: Install the printer drivers
Instructions are below, but first look through these Q and A’s.
WHERE CAN I PRINT?
Currently, you will be able to print to the Pharos Print Cloud and release your print jobs at any of these Pharos Release Stations:
HOW DO I PRINT?
You must name your document before you send it to the printer.
HOW DO I RELEASE IT?
You can release a print job by swiping your ID badge at one of the Pharos release stations.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO PRINT?
You must print within 30 minutes of sending it to the printer. After 30 minutes your documents will be deleted from the queue.
CAN I PRINT ON TWO SIDES (DUPLEX)?
Yes, but it will charge you for each side. If you need help, see someone in Circulation or click here.
CAN I ONLY PRINT OR CAN I ALSO MAKE COPIES
You can print and make copies on the Canon and the Ricoh printers in the computer lab in the library and the Pharos printer on the second floor. Please make sure you log off after you make copies, so someone else will not make copies using your account. The HP printers in the Student Lounge and Classroom Wing will only print.
HOW DO I PAY FOR THIS?
All full time students will be credited $50 for the year to pay for printing and copies (on the two specified copier/printers). Each page costs 10 cents. Once you use the $50 allotted to you, more copies can be added by paying funds to Circulation in the library.
WHAT IF THE $50.00 IS NOT SHOWING UP ON MY ACCOUNT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR?
If you scanned your ID and printed in the previous academic year, you will see a left over balance from last year. Please go to Circulation and ask them to set your balance to $50.00.If you held a job at UMMC over the summer, your $50 may not automatically be reflected on your account. Please see Circulation.
HELP!! I’M LOCKED OUT!
If you are locked out, please contact the DIS Help Desk at x41145. ONLY DIS can help unlock your account. The library can no longer unlock accounts.
All printer problems need to be brought to the attention of library staff at the Circulation Desk. If they cannot solve the problem, they will help find assitance for you.
HOW DO I PRINT FROM MY LAPTOP?
You must first install the VPN client by connecting to the UMMC network. You will only need to do this once.
Click on one of these links to access a step-by-step guide to installing VPN on your PC.
OK, I’VE GOT VPN INSTALLED, NOW WHAT DO I DO?
Great! Now you need to install the printer drivers for the different printers otherwise your print job will not go to the available printers.
INSTALL PRINTER DRIVERS SO YOUR LAPTOP CAN SEND DOCUMENTS
Again, click on one of these links to see how to install the drivers. You only need to do this once. (NOTE for PC instructions: if the link in the first step does not work, you are probably not connected to the VPN. Check that you have the VPN installed and connected and try again.)
You must be successfully connected through VPN and have the printer drivers installed in order to print from your laptop.
