THINGS TO REMEMBER AND GETTING HELP

Please note that letter size paper (8.5" x 11") is the default paper size in the United States. You should change the page setup for your document in the word processor before printing it. Any paper size other than letter size will cause the printer to wait for you to manually feed the paper.

If there is a problem with the print job you sent, please contact the Help Desk (askitg@ias.edu) and let us know.
