Printing Situation.
So in the mail a couple weeks ago i got a letter talking about network printing, can someone further explain this to me? it says its a lot cheaper and ill save a lot more.

well, printing from library is 9 or 11 cents per page now. So IMHO, it's not such a big difference unless you're printing a lot. You're in Humanities so I guess there are a lot of papers to do.

It's just convenience. Assigments late at night printing is no problem and sometimes reprinting can be frustrating. It's not hard to print mass amount of slides, just not double sided (lots of hassle)

When they say network printing, they are referring to the ability to print straight from your laptop through wifi. As compared to emailing your self and printing it from a workstation
