=== Troubleshooting Common Mobility Print Issues ===
*Mobility Print is '''not''' intended for use on college-owned computers as these can already connect easily to networked printers and <span style="color: rgb(29, 28, 29);  font-family: Slack-Lato, appleLogo, sans-serif;  font-size: 15px;  font-style: normal;  font-variant-ligatures: common-ligatures;  font-variant-caps: normal;  font-weight: 400;  letter-spacing: normal;  orphans: 2;  text-align: left;  text-indent: 0px;  text-transform: none;  white-space: normal;  widows: 2;  word-spacing: 0px;  -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;  background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);  text-decoration-thickness: initial;  text-decoration-style: initial;  text-decoration-color: initial;  display: inline !important;  float: none">all features of the print driver</span> would not be available. Refer to [http://go.middlebury.edu/print?win '''http://go/print?win/'''] or [http://go.middlebury.edu/print?mac '''http://go/print?mac/'''] for printer installation instructions.
*Check the wireless network. Mobility Print does <u>not</u> work on the MiddleburyGuest network; you must be connected to wireless using '''MiddleburyCollege'''.
*<span style="font-size:11.0pt"><span style="line-height:115%">Certain printers have restricted access; you may see ones included in the printer list that you cannot use.</span></span>
*Mac users can often fix issues by removing/reinstalling printers from System Preferences > Printers & Scanners.
*Be sure you are using valid login credentials when prompted to authenticate; you need your '''full Middlebury email address and password'''. You can confirm your password is correct by using it to log in to a different service, such as [http://go.middlebury.edu/mail Webmail] ('''[http://go/mail/ http://go/mail/]''').
*Mobility print does not support printing to plotters due to the non-standard page sizes.
*Use of private VPN software (other than Middlebury's Global Protect) will cause problems with Mobility Print setup and use.
*Still need a hand? See [http://go.middlebury.edu/printerhelp Getting Help with Printer Issues] ('''[http://go/printerhelp/ http://go/printerhelp/]''').
== Option 2 - Print from a lab or public computer ==
<span style="color:red">NOTE: Guest printing is currently unavailable due to continued COVID-19 concerns.</span>
#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 from wherever you stored it.
#Print your document. In most programs you can do this by choosing '''File''' -> '''Print''' or by pressing the appropriate shortcut keys.  
#*Specify which pages you want to print, then choose '''MiddColor''', '''MiddBW''', or '''Non_Library_Printers''' from the drop-down list.<br/> (Note: For Windows users, queue names are followed by '''on papercut'''.)
#*Choosing another printer is possible but these three queues give you the greatest flexibility as you can release your print job from [https://www.middlebury.edu/office/information-technology-services/services/printing/printer-locations-use#public-printer-locations any associated release station]. 
#Proceed to a [https://www.middlebury.edu/office/information-technology-services/services/printing/printer-locations-use#public-printer-locations '''Print Release Station'''] associated with your printer selection. (After 24 hours have elapsed your print job will be erased from the system.)
#Log into the '''Print Release Station''' on or near the printer using your Middlebury username and password.
#Release your print job by selecting “'''Print'''”.
== Where can I release my print jobs? ==
*View lists of [https://www.middlebury.edu/office/information-technology-services/services/printing/printer-locations-use#public-printer-locations public printer locations] for jobs sent to '''MiddColor, MiddBW, and Non_Library_Printers'''.
== 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.
*Print double-sided whenever possible. This is the default for the '''MiddBW '''queue.
*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 only one copy of your documents then use the copy machines to generate additional copies, if needed.
