Printing in the Library

In order to print, you'll need a network connection. For assistance in connecting to the UO wireless network , see the Information Services page on networking.

The Library printers offer letter, legal, and tabloid output only. For larger formats, use the printers located in the Output Room.

Setting up printers in Mac OSX

  1. If your computer does not already have the proper driver for our Ricoh MP C2000 multifunction color printer, you'll want to obtain it:
  2. Open System Preferences under the Apple. Click on "Printers & Scanners", "Print & Fax", or "Print & Scan".  (The name varies in different versions of MacOSX.)

    An image of the Systems Preferences panel with the Print and Fax icon highlighted.    An image of the Systems Preferences panel with the Print and Scan icon highlighted.

  3. Unlock the panel, if necessary, by clicking on the lock icon and entering your computer's administrative name and password. Then click on the plus button to add a printer.

  4. Click on IP or IP Printer
  5. For Protocol, select "Line Printer Daemon - LPD"
  6. For Address, enter "lib-ps"
  7. We have two separate printer queues for the laser printer in the Library.  It's not actually necessary to have two separate printer setups on your computer, but having one set that prints black-and-white by default and another that prints in color by default may you help avoid undesired overcharging for black-and-white pages.
  • For pdx_lib_bw

    • Queue Name: lib_pdx_bw
    • Name: (your choice, e.g. Portland Library BW)

      An image of the Printer Name field.
    • Click in the "Print Using" field to show the drop-down menu. (The default choice may read "Generic Postscript Driver".) Choose 'Select a driver to use..." and in Printer Software find Ricoh Aficio MP C2000 PS
    • Press "Add"
    • Any further default settings should be correct.  Click "Continue":

    For lib_pdx_clr:

      Follow the same steps to those for the Black and White queue, but give the printer a different name. That is:

    • Queue: lib_pdx_clr
    • Name: (your choice, e.g. Portland Library Color)
    • Print Using: Select Printer Software: Ricoh Aficio MP C2000 PS
  • Quit the Print Utility and System Preferences. Your printer(s) should now be available.

If you require additional assistance, please contact Peter Gunn in the Portland Library.
