The University of Greenwich has run a printing credit system for a number of years. Students can now top-up their printing credit online as well as on machines in University libraries.
This service has been in pipeline for a number of months, needing a scope of software development work to ensure that it would run effectively. Work was completed earlier this year, and the service has been running successfully since it launched a few weeks ago.
Vivian van Lent, Vice President Education, has been working on this with Information and Library Services (ILS) since November 2016 – it was a point on her manifesto when running for the Full-time Officer role, and she’s pleased to finally see it come to fruition. She says, “I’m so incredibly pleased that the online printing credit top-up system is finally in place! It will make students’ life’s so much easier, now there is no longer a restriction on limited access for printing top-up points across the campuses. And the best thing, there is no minimum amount required to top up your print account! This definitely contributes towards a more accessible and inclusive curriculum.”
