The closest machines are in the Business Building and the Kent State Library. You can also pay us $.10 plus tax per page and we can swipe our FlashCard for you.
How do I print off of a computer in a lab?
Go to the File menu, select Print, the EHHSlabs printer should be selected. Select this option and enter your name (you do not have to enter a password - this is just so you can recognize it when you are at the print station), then swipe your flashcard at the print station.
How do you print a color copy?
Save the document that you want to print to a jump drive or a disc and take it to the front desk in the IRC. Please ask a staff member to send your job to the color printer. You may also email the irc (firstname.lastname@example.org) with an attachment, the number of copies you want, and when you can pick them up (please allow 24 hours). Color copies are $0.40 a page and are only payable with cash or check.
Can I check out the books that are in the IRC?
Yes, if you are a faculty, staff, or student in the College of EHHS, all the books, videos, DVDs, tests, and kits are available for checkout. Just take the items to the IRC front desk and check them out! If you have never checked out at the IRC before you will be asked to fill out a form in which your Banner ID will be required, or you could fill out and print the form yourself to save time.
