Managed ("Pull") Printing

The managed printers are provided by IT Services, who have overall responsibility for their support and maintenance. Information about the managed printing system may be found on the IT Services website:

http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/it/staffprinting/

This information includes specific instructions for various operating systems:

Local Instructions

When installing the printer driver, you may be presented with a list of printers to choose from. If so, you should select PullPrint, found in the All Printers list. (You should not select a specific device such as those with names beginning COSE.)

To print from the managed printer in 484:

  1. Make sure you have your staff or student card with you!
  2. If the printer is in power saving mode when you arrive (i.e. if the screen is dark), push the illuminated green button at the top right.
  3. Log in by tapping your card against the card reader on the left-hand side.
  4. You should see a list of your print jobs. Select the one you want to print and press Print to start (bottom left).

A web interface is provided which lets you send jobs directly to the managed printers without the need to install the driver first. You can access this using your GUID:

Once you have logged in, you can upload the file you wish to print, at which point it will be retrievable from any managed printer.
