  1. Don't wait until you have to print something. Setting up wireless printing takes a few minutes and you need to very carefully follow the instructions on the academic computing web page.
  2. In the library PRINTER 1 and PRINTER 2 are set up for wireless. On the list of wireless printers they are:  " " & " "

NOTE: Apple OSX Double sided printing requires one step not in the instructions !

The last step they have in the instructions for adding a printer is to click the Add button but there is one more step to make double sided printing available:

The printer properties show after you click the Add button then you must find and select the "Duplex_installed" option.

If you installed the printer with out duplex selected go to System Preferences / Print & Scan and delete the printer and add it again. See the link Wireless printing on Mac OSX for the complete procedure.
