The New ERC Print-Release Station

The Educational Resources Center (ERC) has just received a new print-release station for its six public computers. Students use their print allocation, deducted from their WKU IDs to print. In previous years, the ERC had an older laser printer that finally bit the dust just after the Fall 2012 semester began. Print capabilities are a popular service for students, and thanks are due to Interim Libraries’ Dean Connie Foster, Library Public Services Head Dr. Brian Coutts, and Director of Academic Technology Dr. John Bowers and IT/AT teams for their quick installation of the new set-up.
