Several weeks ago a print release station was piloted in McCabe library for a period of three days. The initial pilot was a success from both a technological and a conservation standpoint. The software stood up to the load test of heavy printing from our community, and there was a 20% decrease in printing output from the previous full week of the semester.
Stats: 70,800 pages printed the week before break (Sat-Fri). 56,500 pages printed the week after break (Mon-Sun) surrounding the three day release station test.
ITS would like to thank every one who provided feedback about the pilot. We have taken all of your comments into consideration and will be returning the print release station system to the library Monday, April 11th. Two release stations will be installed to better handle McCabe’s busier crunch times and to keep lines at a minimum.
We’re going to keep collecting feedback about this initiative, feel free to let us know what you think by completing the following survey!
