'GREEN' PRINTING SERVICES

The University Library uses recycled paper in all MFPs and printers. The paper is manufactured from 100 per cent post-consumer waste (collected from office waste). In addition, we provide a free scanning service on all subject library MFPs. Also USB scanners are available in some subject libraries.

All MFPs can be set to copy on both sides, and the two pages into one option is linked directly from the MFP display. We recycle all MFP and printer toner cartridges and provide paper recycling bins.

    Scanning Tips

      • A PDF file is the best file type for scanning texts and books.
      • If using the flatbed please assure that all A4 documents are portrait facing.
      • The copier and the USB scanner will default to scanning items in the document feeder.
      • When using the document feeder all pages will be scanned with one click of the green button.
      • Scanning to email and the network folder defaults to the PDF file type, USB scanning defaults to the JPG file type.
      • Depending on the size of the file it can take a short while to get to your UWA email inbox.
      • When using the USB scanner make certain NOT to change the document's name.
      • The more pages scanned the more likely to is that the print job may become corrupted. To protect against corruption scan in batches. For example select Finish after every chapter.
