Printing and Computing (network storage)
Saint Michael's offers secure network resources for printing and storing of documents and other media. Students and employees send their printing requests from their computers to the networked printers. Print jobs may be printed at almost any printer on campus when people scan their Knight Cards. As for network storage, students and employees are encouraged to save their documents and media projects to our network shares (Z:\ and O:\ drives) as these drives are backed up.
Basic Printer Information
Additional information on printing and network storage for students and employees may be found in the mySMC portal.
Multifunction Printers (MFPs)
In addition to printing black and white, MFPs also give the functionality of copying and scanning. They include stapling as a finishing option (not a default). Most of these printers are color printers, with the exception of those in the Online area on the main floor of Durick. Color MFPs will have the letter “C” in the model type (on the Ricoh tag attached). On an MFP, you can login with your Mikenet username and password by using the keyboard on the touch screen panel if you forget your ID card. Special note for Faculty & Students: While most black and white printing is free for students, access to color printing is restricted for students. If color printing is a requirement for a course, faculty should email the class list to IThelp@smcvt.edu. Color permissions will be reset each semester.
Standard printers print black & white only and do not have the option to staple. When you swipe your ID card at a standard printer, all of the print jobs in your queue will be printed.
Access from Personal Computers
While the new printer queue is installed automatically in all labs and classrooms, extra software is required if you wish to print from your personal computer. You may download the drivers from the web and use the College’s network printers from your personal computer. Information on printing resources may be found in the mySMC portal.
