Printing on the Lab/Student Printers with PCOUNTER

In the interest of sustainability and conservation of resources, students are permitted 1000 free printed pages per calendar year (but if you print double-sided then you get 2000 free pages (technically) – we set double-sided as the default print setting when we installed the printers on your computer, so you should be good to go).  Printing is controlled by “Pcounter,” a server application that tracks individual student printing use.  After a lab assistant helps you install the 3 student printers you are now ready to print at the law school.  The printers are located in the Student Computer Lab, the Boley stacks, and the Wood Hall 1st floor student study area.

Want to print your document?

1. Click: File > Print > Select the printer that you want to print to (i.e. Boley, Lab, Wood Hall)

2. Click: Print

3. Open your web browser

4. Go to: http://lawprint.lclark.edu/pcounter  (bookmark this website in your browser toolbar)

5. Mark the check box next to the documents you want to print

6. Enter your username and password (the same one you use to log on to the internet)

7. Click print and go pick up your document … HOORAY!

If your document does not print ask the student lab assistant to release your print job; if the document doesn’t print, you haven’t been charged yet.  To check your balance visit http://lawprint/balance/
