John Tyler encourages everyone to think green, even in the library. Everyone can help conserve paper and ink by printing smart.

Before hitting print, think.

  • Do I only need a section of this longer document? You can print a few pages of the article or web page rather than an entire book.
  • PowerPoint: did you know you can print multiple slides per page? These condensed handouts can have 3 or more slides to a piece of paper (and then have less paper to drag around).Go to Print Preview and change the format of your pages–or grab any staff member for individual training.
  • Large document? Ask a staff member for tips.
  • Do I really need to print this at all–or is it better accessed and more portable in digital format?

Do your bit to help the enviorment and help your college. Print smart!
