Printing

ARE has two VersaLink B615 B/W copiers on both the 3rd and 4th floor. Both ARE copiers on each floor have been configured for network printing and should be available for printing over the network as printers you can print to upon logging in.  Please note that these copiers are capable of stapling. Remember that ARE is charged *per page* on a monthly basis, whether we are copying or printing.  Please recycle paper either at the copier or at your own printer if applicable.

The ARE copiers will print a “banner” page, which will be offset before each print job with your unity ID on it and will help when searching for your printout on the output tray. The address book in the printers contains departmental faculty and staffs’ emails.

Email Feature:

The next item of introduction for our new copiers is the ability to not only scan but to scan something and have it emailed to your inbox or whomever as an attachment.

  1. Place scanning material in the document feeder or on a scanning glass
  2. Scroll down and select the preferences (1 sided or 2 sided, enlarge, darken etc.)
  3. Either type e-mail in the address field or select address book icon
  4. Hit Send

–>Once at the printer<–

  3. Select the job and input the PIN Code to release it

Stapling:  The printer is capable of stapling a document up to 50 pages. The printer’s finisher will only hold 500 sheets of paper, so if you’re sending 800 page staple job, the printer will stop once it reaches 500 pages and alert you to remove the finished part of the job.

  1. Select “Preferences” or “Properties” in the print menu once you have selected the desired printer
  2. In Finishing: Select 1 staple, hit OK, and send the job
