Our first order of business: You may have noticed that the Newman Library Building is under construction. As mentioned in a previous report, there will be scaffolding from the second-floor atrium all the way up to the ninth-floor skylight for the next eight to 10 weeks to fix a leak in the skylight. Due to the decrease in the number of standing computer kiosks, there are longer lines. However, the good news is that there are ways to print outside of using the limited standing kiosks in the library.
You don’t need to use Baruch’s computers to print out your documents. Simply go to “https://printing.baruch.cuny.edu/user” on your laptop, and you’ll be able to put in a queue for any documents you need under the “Web Print” tab. This is a great feature because you can upload documents from any place on or off campus, then go to any printer on campus, swipe your ID and print out everything in your queue.
If you don’t have access to a laptop, that is perfectly fine. You can print directly from your Android or iOS device.
First, make sure you’re connected to Baruch Wi-Fi. Once your Excel, Word or PDF document is open, open the print menu, then select “AirPrint” and the appropriate printer and you’re done! Make sure to go to the right printer.
In order to print from an Android, you’ll need to download the “Paper Cut” software from the Play Store. On Baruch Wi-Fi, click on the application and make sure mobile print is “on.” Then select a printer, open your document and print.
There are printers available in the Newman Vertical Campus across from the elevators on the second floor, in the club suite on the third floor and in several rooms on the sixth and seventh floor computer labs. The exact room numbers for these labs can be found on Baruch’s website under the search term “Student Computing Lab Listing.”
The Undergraduate Student Government is working with the dean of the library, Arthur Downing, to get more printers on different floors of the NVC so students don’t need to run back and forth from NVC to the library building to print.
All the instructions for printing are on the BCTC page on Baruch’s website. You’ll be seeing more marketing throughout Baruch for wireless and mobile printing. The flyers will have instructions and other links made available through QR codes. Let’s work together to ensure that the construction goes smoothly and that we adapt by making use of the technology at hand.
