Duplex Printing: Save Trees

It is now possible to print duplex (two-sided) in the library! By summer quarter, duplex (two-sided) should be the default setting. But if you want to print duplex now, you can choose that option.

Duplex printing also saves you money. If you print two pages of information on two pages of paper, it will cost you 20 cents. However, if you print two pages of information on one page of paper, using duplex printing, it will cost you 10 cents.

If you are printing an assignment, please check with your instructor to make sure that they will accept double-sided assignments.
