Additional Information

Technically, you only need an Internet connection—it doesn't have to be wireless. For example, you could install this software on your desktop computer in residence (which is connected directly, via a cable, to the Internet). You could then print a document to, say, a selected printer in Robarts Library, and walk over to retrieve the output.

Jobs that are not printed two hours after submission will be deleted from the print queues.
