These instructions will explain how you can
configure your personal computer to print to an AcIS laser printer.
Those living in a URH/IRE residence hall or those with a MNS (mobile
network services connection in the library) can utilize this service by
following the instructions outlined. AcIS printers are located
in several convenient locations around campus, including some
AcIS laser printers are controlled by software
called NINJa. The NINJa printing system was developed at Columbia
to maintain print queues, prevent unnecessary printouts, keep track of
print quotas, and make sure you receive your job without having to sort
through many pieces of paper. Documents that are not printed within a
certain amount of time will expire and be deleted from the print queue.
The expiration time for each AcIS printer is shown in the list of
I nstructions for using the NINJa printing system are
also available online.
The following applications are supported for
printing. (These are the same applications used in our public computing
facilities. Other applications may work, but are not supported by AcIS.)
- ClarisWorks for Macintosh and Windows
- Microsoft Excel for Macintosh and Windows
- Microsoft Word for Macintosh and Windows
