VML: Technology: Computing, Scanning, Printing, Copying and Phones
- The Computer Availability in the Veterinary Medicine Library website shows all of the Unity workstations in the Library. The majority are College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) Unity workstations which NCSU patrons may use to access their Unity filespace and the full suite of Unity applications. All Unity workstations in the main reading room and conference rooms normally print using your AllCampus/OneCard balance to the Follow Me/A110-2 B&W printer in the Current Journals/VETS aisle. There is also a color FollowMe printer (choose WolfPrint-Color) in the A110 Copy/Print Room
- Visitors may use the two guest library workstations in the Veterinary Medicine Library. These computers located next to the A110 Copy/Print Room provide quick access to the internet, to the Libraries catalog and databases, and to some productivity software, but not Unity file access. Another quick lookup guest computer is located on the north side of the Service Desk. These computers are not connected to a printer--if you are not an NCSU affiliate using WolfPrint's "Web Print" on these or any other non-Unity computer, please ask for assistance.
- The VML has several PC and Mac laptops and tablet PCs available for loan through the Libraries' technology lending service. These laptops are equipped with the full suite of Microsoft Office applications, as well as web browsers and other basic applications and utilities.
- Wireless Computing is available in the library. This service provides wireless network access from one of our laptops or from your own laptop. For more information, see the NCSU Libraries' Connecting to Internet and Campus Network page.
- Laptop Computer Lab The A101 Multipurpose Room can be converted to a laptop computer lab for 24 participants. See laptop lab procedures for more information about reservations and setup.
Scanners (A110 Copy/Print Room)
- Overhead Color and Greyscale Scanner - Zeutschel overhead scanner first one located inside the copier room. Use a USB drive to download scans as PDF, JPG, or TIFF. Great for large or tightly bound materials; works better on glossy items than the other overhead scanner. VML lends USB drives--ask at the Service Desk.
- Overhead Color and Greyscale Scanner - Kic overhead scanner allows scans to be saved on USB drive or emailed to your account. Use the V-cradle for tightly bound materials or those that will not lie flat. Doesn't not work well on glossy materials.
- Flatbed Scanner - Flatbed scanning workstation with document feeder - Epson GT20000 scans up to 11.7x17. Log into your Unity account to scan materials.
All Unity printing is serviced by WolfPrint. The fees are $0.06 per page for black and white printing and $0.25 for each page of color printing. Larger print jobs can be arranged through Wolf XPpress Print and Copy Services.
You need a positive balance in your AllCampus/OneCard account in order to print to printers in the library. You can check your print quota at http://print.ncsu.edu and use a credit card on that site to add value to your account online. There is a $2.00 service charge for adding value online to the card. Value may also be added with check by mail or in person via cash or check at the Wolfpack One Card Office in the Talley Student Center weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m..
There are two ways to print from Unity computers in the Veterinary Medicine Library.
Send your print job to the virtual FollowMe printer (select WolfPrint-BlackandWhite for B&W or WolfPrint-Color for color ). At any FollowMe printer, swipe your ID (or enter your unity ID/Password) to login and retrieve your print job. At CVM, the B&W printer labeled “FollowMe" is located in VML in the current journal aisle. The color "Follow Me" printer is in the A110 Copy/Print Room. FollowME Frequently Asked Questions
There is also a TC1551 printer in the 24-hour computer lab in the hallway between the Terry Center and the Health & Wellness Center. If you select this printer, your print job will be awaiting you at that printer’s location.
