Can I print using my own paper in the Library?

If you want to print something on your own paper in the Library you can using the MP (Multi-Purpose) tray on our printers, but you might need to take a couple of extra steps.  The MP tray is a separate part of our printers that lets you use your own paper - you can find it on the left hand side of the printer as you look at it.  

You will need to pull it down from the top of the tray before you use it, and insert the paper you want to use.

When you put the paper in the machine should automatically use the paper you've inserted.

You can also guarantee your work will print using this tray by selecting it before you send your document to print from one of the library PCs. You do this just before printing by going to 'Printer Properties', then 'Paper source'. Under 'Paper source' you should then select 'Manual Feed'. You may only get these options you try and print from a desktop Microsoft Office application, for example Word or Excel, rather than a PDF document or when printing from the web Office applications.

If you are photocopying a document, you can also select the MP tray before copying your item. Under 'Copy', select 'Options', then 'Paper Selection', 'Paper Tray' and 'Manual Feed'.
