To simplify all of your print jobs, we recommend that you use the online campus printing service at  This service enables you to quickly (and easily) toggle between single-side and duplex printing.

However, you can print directly to a library printer from any program on a library computer.  All library computers are preset for "duplex" printing (printing on both sides of the paper). 

To print a document or web page from any program, hold down the "control" button and hit the "p" key (ctrl+p).  A print menu will appear.  Select "printer properties" and make sure the "Print on both sides" check box is unchecked.  At this point can complete your print job.
