Paperless Copies

Even though Earth Day was last week, there’s more . . . consider how many copy requests you might send in each year.  What if you could reduce your use by just a few more pages? If conserving a few more resources interests you, we’d like you to try a paperless copy request. You may have noticed the shortcut to Central Copy on your desktop. You may have even clicked on it. Why not give it a try?

Here’s why we working toward reducing (and perhaps even eliminating) copy requests through envelopes and request forms:

  • Streamline copy requests
  • Reduce paper consumption
  • Reduce the number of forms
  • Create efficiencies and reduce turn-around time
  • Convenience!

We don’t have all the bugs worked out yet, but we have done some test driving. The next time you are going to print a document to send it to Central Copy, skip the printing and try this new method and let us know what you think. Here are the directions: Central Copy Request Directions. Your attachments should be in PDF format.

In the meantime, we’ll be working out the remaining bugs, like how share access to textbook resources and how to manage items that aren’t electronic.

If you don’t see the icon on your desktop, it will appear next time you restart or you can do a quick refresh. Here’s how to get the icon.

  1. What if we don’t have the shortcut for central copy on our desktop?? (I’ve already restarted my computer)

  2. Hi Rebecca,

    That should be remedied now . . . it was my fault! If you right click on the red and white square near the time (lower right of your screen) and select Refresh, you’ll be in business.

  3. It worked very nicely – and quick turn-around too! Thanks!
