Pharos is a print management solution created by Pharos Systems International and currently used at Wooster. After selecting a printer, users get a Pharos popup that requests a username and password. Students must put a username and entering a password is optional. Swiping your COW card at the release station next to the printer you selected will print the document. Faculty and staff members using Pharos must enter a username and password and also select a cost center to release a print job.
Public printing and copying is available in Andrews Library (CoRE), Kauke Hall, Timken Science Library, Taylor Hall, and the Wired Scot.

Each student at the college is given a printing allocation based on class year. Students with first-year and sophomore standing will be given a printing account of $60.00 per semester, the equivalent of 1,200 pages. Juniors will receive $75.00 (1,500 pages) and seniors will receive a $100.00 (2,000 pages) per semester. Once their account limit is exceeded, students will be charged 5 cents per printed page. More money may be added to printing accounts at the Financial Services counter at the Wilson Bookstore, located in Lowry Center.
Campus community members have the option to install public printing queues on their personal computers. After setting up a print queue, users can send a document directly to the release station. Instructions for doing so can be found on our Information Technology website.
For setting up public printers on Mac OS X and Windows, go to our Software Downloads page and click the "Pharos Popup, Pharos Notify, & Printer drivers" section. Then, download the appropriate Installer package for your operating system.
Public printers on campus are configured to support duplex, or double-sided printing. To duplex in Windows XP, select "Print" and then a specific public printer. Click the "Properties" button and then the "Print Setup" tab. Here you will find the duplexing option, with the choices for single sided, short edge, or long edge duplexing.
To duplex in Mac OSX, select "Print" and choose a printer as usual. From the drop-down menu that says "Copies & Pages," select the "Layout" option. This preference pane contains the options for duplex printing.
In addition to printing and copying units, the College provides public color printers for campus community use in CoRE, Kauke 200, Taylor 205, The Wired Scot, and in Timken Science Library. These printers are Ricoh Aficio SP C430dn models. Color printing cost 15 cents per page, versus 5 cents per page for black and white printing.
User Services prints posters for student academic assignments and faculty and staff projects. For additional information visit the Instructional Technology poster printing page.
Toner, paper, and staples for copiers and printers may be ordered on the Technology website, located on the Request Forms page. Orders will be filled within one business day.
