Double-Sided Printing in Engineering and Computer Science Library

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

As part of a sustainability initiative, double-sided printing is now the default print setting in Engineering and Computer Science Library.  Printing remains at $0.15/page, so if you print two pages double sided on one sheet of paper, it will still cost you $0.30.

If you need to print single-sided, instructions on how to change the print settings are located at the computer workstations.   If you have any questions, you can ask at the Loan Services Desk or Reference Help Desk.

The U of T Bulletin recently ran articles about awards that were bestowed upon Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering faculty members and a graduate student.

The Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) inducted eight Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering professors as fellows in June 2010.  Professors Stavros Argyropoulos and Torstein Utigard of materials science and engineering, Bruce Francis, Farid Najm and Safwat Zaky of electrical and computer engineering, Andrew Goldenberg and Jean Zu of mechanical and industrial engineering and David Zingg of UTIAS were all honoured.  Please see the Bulletin Article (on page 1, or here) or the press release from the CAE for complete details.  For more information about the Canadian Academy of Engineering, please see their web page.
