ITS has launched a pilot project in the Academic Commons that changes the way printing & copying are done on the public multifunction devices in this building. Our new print management system, Pharos Uniprint, utilizes “release to print” functionality. In order to print or copy, all members of the community must swipe their ID card or enter Oxynet credentials at the printer.
