Printing to the Computer Labs and Libraries from Your Personal Computer

 

Many of you have used our computer labs and libraries and are familiar with the pay for print system we utilize for printing from Tufts owned computers. Now students, faculty, and staff can print to the same location from anywhere ON CAMPUS using your own computers, whether it's a desktop, laptop, Mac, or PC. Installation of the following packages will allow you to send a print job to the location specified.

PC Users (32 and 64-bit Compatible)

Print to Tisch Library or Lilly Music Library (Black & White printer)

* If the initial installation fails, please try deleting the printer (if a new one was
  added) and uninstalling/reinstalling the package.

Mac Users
Only one Mac package can be installed on your computer at any time.  For example: If you've installed the Medford Public Queue on your Mac, and you want to switch to using the Tisch Library Queue on that Mac, you must uninstall the client first by following these instructions:

  • Open the System Preferences and select "Print and Fax."
  • Select the printer that you want to remove and click the minus symbol to remove that printer.
  • Close the "Print and Fax" preference window.
  • Run the Pharos uninstaller located on your computer in  LIBRARY > APPLICATION SUPPORT>PHAROS>UTILITIES folder.
  • Check the box that says PHAROS POPUP and select Continue.  Verify the component to be removed and select Continue again.
  • The Pharos client will be uninstalled and the process is done.

To enable duplex printing on a Mac after installing the appropriate print software package, please proceed with the following steps:

(Steps may vary slightly based on version of operating system)

  • Open the System Preferences and select "Print and Fax."
  • Select the "Medford Public Labs and Ginn" printer
  • Select "Printer Setup" icon
  • Select "Driver" tab
  • Check the box next to "Duplex Unit" to enable double sided printing
  • Select "OK" and close all print related windows
  • The option to print double-sided should now be available

Retrieving your printing job
Following installation of the appropriate package, send a print job in the same way you would if you were using the lab. At your convenience (within 12 hours), stop by any of the locations supported by the print driver you installed and use the pay for print release station to access your print job.
