== Option 1 - Print from a lab or public computer ==
#Log in to a college computer in the library or any of our public computer labs. Be sure to use your own Middlebury username and password - if someone else was using the computer before you and forgot to logout, log them out first!
#Access and open your document from the cloud, from your USB drive, or wherever you stored it.
#Print your document. In most programs, you can do this by going to '''File''' -&gt; '''Print''' or by pressing the appropriate shortcut keys.
#*Select which pages you want to print, then choose [http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/technology/help/technology/printing/locations#Library_Printers '''Library_Printers'''] or [http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/technology/help/technology/printing/locations#Non_Library_Printers '''Non_Library_Printers'''] from the drop-down list.
#*Choosing another printer is possible but these two queues give you the greatest flexibility as you can release your print job from any associated release station.

== Please conserve resources!  ==
You can reduce the environmental impact of printing your papers by following some simple recommendations:
*Use '''Print Preview''' (under the '''File''' menu) to see how your document looks before printing.
*Always print double-sided. This is the default on Middlebury College’s printers.
*Don’t print e-reserve or other web source material unless truly necessary. Instead of printing the entire document, take notes while reading it on the computer to help you remember important points.
*When printing a draft, print multiple pages on one sheet. This can be surprisingly readable at 2-4 pages per sheet. It becomes a tremendous paper-saving technique when combined with double-sided printing!
*Please print one copy only of your documents and use the copy machines to generate additional copies, if needed.
