Printing in the Library:

See New Students link which is in the Library Student Centre site; scroll down to: Printing, photocopying and scanning. 

Not all older file types can be printed using the Library printers because the printers do not recognize certain. older, Microsoft formats. 
They recognise:

  • .docx  
  • .pptx
  • .xlsx
  • .jpeg

But do not recognise:

  • .doc
  • .ppt
  • .xls

If you have, for example, a .doc file:

  • Save the document as a PDF file. This is a format which is easily recognized by the printers and prints without errors.
    • Once you have downloaded the word document, if it is a reading from your subject site, etc. save it to your memory stick (USB).
    • Do a right click on the word doc, and select the option to convert to Adobe PDF. 
    • If there isn't this option, open the document and from the menu options choose Save as, and choose PDF as the file type. 

If you need help with converting files come into the library and one of the Librarians will help you.
