The printing process differs depending on whether you are using a Bethany computer or your own computer.
Printing from a Bethany computer
When on a school computer, you may print documents from many of the printers available to students, faculty, and staff. Here, Microsoft Word will be the example – while most other software functions similarly.
With your file open in Word, click on the File tab, on the top left of the screen.
This will bring you to the file page – to print, click on the “print” button, below file on the left side. Then choose your printer. There are many printers across the campus, so there is likely one very close to the computer being used. Then click the print button, after setting the amount of copies (which is one by default) to the right. Your document(s) should print shortly.
PaperCut allows you print PDF files, Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations to one of the student printers located throughout campus. To print from your laptop to a Bethany printer, open a web browser and go to this web address: http://studentprint.blc.edu
This will take you to the PaperCut login screen:
Enter your Bethany username and password, and then click on the Log In button. You should then see the main PaperCut page, which will look like this:
Click on the Web Print link in the left-hand column:
You will then see the Web Print form. To continue, click on the Submit A Job link:
Next, select the printer you wish to use, and then click on the Print Options button
Under the Print Options page, select the number of copies you need to print, and then click the Upload Document button:
The next step will take you to the Upload Documents page. Click on the Choose File button to pick the file you want to print. Allowed file types are Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft XPS, and PDF:
Once you have selected the file you wish to print, click on the Upload and Complete button:
You will then see a status page tracking your print job’s progress. It should print within 10 to 30 seconds after you hit the Upload & Complete button.
PaperCut does not support printing web pages. However, if you need to print a web page, you can so by using the free printfriendly.com utility to convert a page into an easily printed PDF file. To use printfriendly.com, navigate to its address in your web browser:
Once you arrive at the page, copy & paste the address you wish to print into the form, and then click the print preview button:
The website will then generate a printer-friendly PDF of your web page. To save it as a PDF for use with PaperCut, click on the “pdf” button above the displayed PDF file:
The PDF file will then be saved to your computer, and you can use the PaperCut web print form to print it.
