New face in the library!

The ever-expanding TC Library welcomes its 5th library guru, Anna Drennen. Anna is our new Interlibrary Loan Assistant. Swing by the library in the mornings and say hi. Or, order 40 books through ILL, to keep Anna on her toes! (Rather, please don't.)

Library Tip: Printing in the Library

Library Tip #1: Printing in the Library
Wondering how to jazz up your printing in the library, and save
trees? Read on!

1. You can print on both sides of the paper by selecting File --> Print, and then selecting the Properties tab on the print screen. Click the box that says "Print on both sides."2. Wonder why your pdf won't print? Print pdfs is tricky; you have you use the buttons on the pdf screen. The buttons actually appear in the web browser window, so take a look around. The buttons also vary in appearance, but the "printer" icon is generally similar to the one picture below.
3. You instructor may occasionally place PowerPoint slides in Blackboard. These can be tricky to print, and even trickier to explain in a blog. Thus, if you have problems printing a PowerPoint presentation out of Blackboard, please ask the librarian at the reference desk for assistance. You can print multiple slides per page, as well, so be sure to request that printing feature as well.
