Printing in the ISB

Short Answer

Double-click on Printer (on the Desktop), enter your Biology Department username and password. A window should open in Safari pointed at your Print Release queue. Print as many things as you want -- they'll go to your queue where you can release them.

Longer Answer

There are printers in labs in the ISB that are managed by the Biology Department Technical staff. These printers are named for Reef Islands and include matema (in ISB260), nifiloli (in ISB264), nalongo (in ISB268), nupani (in ISB360), nukapu (in ISB364), and ngawa (in ISB368). These printers are already set up on the computers in these labs and computers in those labs should already be directed to point at the correct printer by default (with the possible exception of the laptops, which have a tendency to move from place to place). All of the printers are set up on all of the computers, however, to make it simple to print to another printer if one is backed up or malfunctioning.

Users need a Biology Department account to print. You can look up your account information here.

You need to authenticate to the printer and visit the print release page in order to print.

There are also a set of printer control scripts that can help manage the queues of the printers. You cannot release jobs from there, but you can cancel jobs or disable and enable the queues (helpful for fixing problems or canceling jobs in progress). You can reach those scripts by visiting wahoo
