PMC Printer Guidelines

The PMC has one printer that can be used by any member of a Publications and Media Organization. Printer usage does not have to be reserved in advance. If someone would like to use the printer, they can print directly from their laptop or from the PMC desktop. 

Any member of a Publications & Media Org who would like to use the printer is welcome to do so. Instructions on how to use the printer are posted on the printer. We ask that, while the printer is a resource we have to offer, individuals do not abuse the printing services (ie someone printing out 20 page articles every day).
