▼   Instructions for Wireless Printing

To print from anywhere send the document as an attachment through your email program to print.bbl.library@gmail.com for campus pickup or print.hirc.library@gmail.com for HIRC pickup. On most mobile devices, you can attach a document to an email using the Share feature. Have the document you wish to print open in the app of your choice then select "Share" from your menu, then select E-mail or Gmail. Your document will show on the print station in the printer queue under your email address and can be released as usual with a TRAC card payment.

DO NOT PRINT PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION OVER THE WIRELESS PRINTING SYSTEM

Tips:

  • We have found that some apps do not share by attaching a document to an email, but instead send a link to the desired file online, which will not work with this system. For example, Dropbox for Android works correctly, but the Dropbox app for iOS devices shares a link instead of a file attachment. You'll want to choose a different app from which to send documents when you need to print from iOS. For instance, Documents by Readdle, GoodReader, and iAnnotate are all iOS apps that allow users to view and edit files from Dropbox that send shared documents as attachments.
  • Most document and image file types are supported. However, files from the Pages app will need to be converted to PDF, DOC, or RTF. To print a website, one must first create a document from the content using a PDF-creator, Microsoft Document (or Image) Writer, screen capture tool, or by copy/pasting the desired content into a document. 
  • Results will be black ink only and single-sided.
