Mantor Monday: All the News That's Fit to Print

Big news around here today: our community patron log-in issues have finally been resolved! This means that: a.) if you are a community patron with an existing computer account, you can once again use your individual user name and password, and b) you can PRINT AGAIN!!!! Oh, the joy: all day, the lobby has been filled with the sound of rejoicing as people read the sign announcing the return of the printers.
If it's been so long since you were able to use your account that you forgot your password, we can help you reset it. You'll have to show us a photo i.d. before we'll monkey around with a password, though, so make sure you bring one with you.
If you are a community patron who applied for a computer account during the Dark Times, (we could not process new accounts until the log-in issue was fixed) the good news is, your application is probably winging it's way through the approval process right now.
If you are a community patron who has been using the temporary generic username/password without an account of your own: the jig is up. That one doesn't work anymore, and you'll have to apply for your own account. You'll need to bring in photo i.d. to apply for a computer account. It generally takes 48 hours from the time you submit your application until your account is set up and ready to use.

The other printing issue that 's been causing some minor mayhem around here is student printing. Yes, it was free for students while the system was broken. Those were the good old days. Now, it's gonna cost you. Printing for students is automatically deducted from your printing account. The problem is, you can't put money on your printing account at the library. Sorry. You have to do that across the street at the Computer Center.

Happy Printing!
