With the implementation of a new printing system and contract with RJ Young, MTSU has experienced numerous issues since the start of the spring semester, including a campus-wide printer shutdown in the midst of mid-terms last week.
Due to these issues, the university has decided to remove Uniflow software and stations from campus and revert back to GoPrint, the system that was used previously.
“The university feels that we simply can’t risk another long campus wide printing outage,” said Neal McClain, Director of Library Technology, in a recent notice to library employees.
This means that the library and other areas across campus will be operating as they did before the attempted implementation of the new system in December. However, there will be some differences. Details are still being worked out at this time.
Things the university is currently certain of:
- The login process at the PCs will not change. Students will continue to use their MTmail account and password to log in.
- Public patrons (non-students) will still need to retrieve a login and password at the service desk each day.
The James E. Walker library hopes to have the GoPrint system up and running before students return to classes on Monday.
