What is Papercut?
Papercut is a new print management system designed to be an important component of the GREENprint@Naz sustainability initiative. We are embarking on a campus-wide effort to reduce unnecessary paper and toner consumption in support of Nazareth's sustainability goals. The deployment of Papercut in public computing areas is expected to significantly reduce wasted paper and conserve our natural resources.
What does Papercut Do?
Papercut gathers statistics on campus printing use. This information will be used to help formulate future campus-wide printing policies and to educate the campus about the environmental impacts of printing.
At this time, we have not instituted printing quotas or print charges. The Papercut system will, however, help everyone "think before they print" by requiring user confirmation when submitting large print jobs.
Print jobs of more than 20 pages require user confirmation.
There is also a limit on the number of "copies" one can print at a time. Currently, you may only print up to 10 copies of any one document at a time.
Papercut allows you to submit print jobs from your personally owned computer if you are connected to the campus wireless network (nazwlan). To use Web Print, please go to the following site and and log in with your MyNaz username and password:
Then, navigate to Web Print. You will see a list of printers that are accessible via Web Print. Not all printers are Web Print enabled. Please choose the printer that is closest to you. You can download instructions for web printing here.
On the NazPrint site, you can view the environmental impact of your printing in the Summary section. There you will find information on how many print jobs and pages you have printed. You will also see the environmental equivalents of your printing over time (Trees, Carbon, Energy).
