Pharos Print Service is the copy and print management system of Medgar Evers College. It is now operational in the Library, and Academic Computing in the Bedford Building. It will soon be functional in the Carroll Street Tech and Quiet Lounge and Academic Building 1 Computing Labs as well.
Why is Medgar Evers College charging for printing? By implementing the Pharos Print Services system, the College will reduce consumable cost and paper waste, and increase environmental awareness and conservation efforts on campus. By asking people to “stop and think” before they print, the money previously used to support “free” printing in the Library and the Academic Computing Labs can be redirected to upgrade and enhance technology and services in those areas.

Black and white prints and copies will cost $.10 cents per page in the Library, AB 1 and the Academic Computing Labs. Colored copies and print jobs will cost $.30 cents per page in the Library. Print jobs are sent to the Print Release Stations in those locations.
The Pharos Print Service payment kiosks are located in the Library, and the Academic Computing Labs.
Using the kiosk you can add money to cover the cost of making copies. Initially, printed pages will be deducted from your free balance. Free balance can only be used for printing. Free balance cannot be used for making copies. After your printing free balance has been expended, you will have to add money to your account at any of the payment kiosks. Your real balance will be charged until your free balance is replenished the following semester.
A Print Release Station allows students and guests to release print jobs. In many situations, a release station is a dedicated PC terminal located next to the printers.
The Library, and Academic Computing Labs in the Bedford Building, AB 1 Computing Labs will have Print Release Stations. Carroll Street will also have Print Release Stations.
Pharos Print Services system is ready for use at the open Computer Lab located in the Bedford Building, Room 2012, and on open computers in our Library and in AB1.
No, as long as you have enough money in your account to cover the job. Some computers on campus might not have all the software needed to print a particular format of file. You might need to go back to the lab in which a file was created in order to print it out. You also might find that some Web pages won’t let you print them for copyright reasons or don’t print the way you might expect them to. These are not printing restrictions. Ask the lab assistants or Library staff for help.
At this time, color and duplex printing is being offered.
No. All print jobs will be on standard 8 1/2" x 11" paper.
When you release the print job, the bottom of the Print Release Station screen will tell you exactly which printer is printing your job.
Eight (8) hours. After that time, the print job will be automatically deleted.
Large files may take longer to print. Documents loaded with graphics and Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft PowerPoint documents may take more time. MEC Managed Copy and Print Service
