Copy Center

New MFD Installations and Training Schedule

UMW’s contractor for mail and copy services (SPS) is replacing existing Toshiba MFDs (multi-functional devices that print, scan, and copy) with new Canon Color MFDs. Implementation is under way and will continue through November 2023.

The transition may cause minimal downtime while SPS technicians, along with a Copy Center Team Member, exchange each old MFD for a new one, then start and test the new device. The Canon devices will continue to use PaperCut and will have the same interface and type of card readers as the current MFD’s, so there will be little change to the end user experience.

The Canon MFDs will default to grayscale and provide the option to print in color. The cost of a color copy will display in PaperCut as $0.30 per page, but the actual department charge will be $0.21 per page.  The retail cost to print a color page is $0.30. There will be no change in cost for grayscale prints.

Updated user instructions will be placed near each machine. In the event that they are needed, online training sessions are available as reflected in the schedule below. If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled sessions, a recording will be available on the Copy Center website.

Assorted Notes

Beverage Supply Chain Shortages

Pepsi is experiencing ongoing challenges in their business operations due to labor and material shortages. As a result of these supply chain issues, there may be shortages or delays in products at the Bookstore, vending machines, and the dining hall. Your patience is appreciated.

ATM Move

The BB&T ATM, now operated by Truist, has been relocated from the third floor of Lee Hall to the second floor of the University Center. It is located by the dining kiosk adjacent to Panera.

Office Supply Purchases

The University’s exclusive office supply contractor, The Supply Room (TSRC), must be used for all office supply orders. TSRC maintains a convenient punch-out catalog within eVA and ships next day for most traditional supply items if the order is placed before 4PM. If there are needs that absolutely cannot wait for a next day delivery, the University bookstore should be the secondary contract resource prior to making a purchase from an alternate source. Note that purchases from alternate sources will require compliance with applicable procurement regulations. Please address any related questions to Procurement Services.

The UMW Bookstore offers Boyd’s Coffee compostable pods, which will work in most brewers that accept K-Cup® portion packs, excluding Keurig® 2.0 brewers. With a bio-based filter and a ring made of coffee chaff, Boyd’s pods provide a sustainable single-serve caffeine solution that supports UMW’s goal of reducing plastic waste. Mix and match by purchasing individual pods, or order a single blend by the case. (When purchasing a case, please allow 5 business days between order and delivery to the Bookstore.) Departmental and Faculty Staff discounts apply! Please contact the UMW Bookstore at sm8306@bncollege.com or x1017 with questions about ordering Boyd’s coffee pods.

Your interest in and efforts towards a more sustainable future are appreciated! Questions about sustainability may be directed to GreenUMW@umw.edu.


Copy Center

Multi-Functional Devices: A Desktop Alternative

Multi-functional devices (MFDs) are centrally located print, copy and scanning devices. The MFDs are a valuable resource, especially in light of current  supply chain and chip production issues that are affecting the availability of desktop printers. Their use also reduces plastic consumption and waste associated with desktop printers. If you need help finding and MFD near you, or would like assistance in using them, please contact the Copy Center at x1935. Instructions for use can also be found here. Saving files as e-documents rather than printing is another great way to be kind to both the planet and departmental budgets!

Partners In Printing

Did you know the Copy Center partners with local companies for jobs that can’t be completed in-house? Contact us with your printing needs, and we will work with our selective local partners to secure the best value in price and quality. Contact the Copy Center with questions at copies@umw.edu, or by calling x1935.

The UMW Bookstore offers Boyd’s Coffee compostable pods, which will work in most brewers that accept K-Cup® portion packs, excluding Keurig® 2.0 brewers. With a bio-based filter and a ring made of coffee chaff, Boyd’s pods provide a sustainable single-serve caffeine solution that supports UMW’s goal of reducing plastic waste.

Mix and match by purchasing individual pods, or order a single blend by the case. (When purchasing a case, please allow 5 business days between order and delivery to the Bookstore.)

Departmental and Faculty Staff discounts apply!

Price per case (80 pods per case):

  • 20% Departmental Discount: $68.78
  • 10% Fac/Staff Discount: $77.38

Please contact the University Bookstore for pricing on individual pods or to place an order for a case.

Your interest in and efforts towards reducing single use plastics in accordance with Executive Order 77 are appreciated. The switch to compostable pods will go a long way to reaching our collective goal!

Sincerely,

The UMW Green Working Group
Holly, Kathy, and Melva

Questions about Executive Order 77 may be directed to GreenUMW@umw.edu.

Please contact the UMW Bookstore at sm8306@bncollege.com or x1017 with questions about ordering Boyd’s coffee pods.


Copy Center

Greener Than Yesterday…

Have you noticed anything different with your Copy Center jobs?

To reduce the volume of single use plastics, the Copy Center has made some changes in the packaging of copy jobs sent through inter-campus mail. Most jobs will arrive in reusable boxes or bags. Please help us on our mission to reduce plastic pollution by placing the reusable containers in the outgoing mail for return to the Copy Center, where it will be used to deliver future copy jobs.

Multi-Functional Devices: Greener Machines

Multi-functional devices (MFDs) are centrally located print, copy and scanning devices. The MFDs are a valuable resource, especially in light of current  supply chain and chip production issues that are affecting the availability of desktop printers. Their use also reduces plastic consumption and waste associated with desktop printers. If you need help finding and MFD near you, or would like assistance in using them, please contact the Copy Center at x1935. Instructions for use can also be found here.

Saving files as e-documents rather than printing is another great way to be kind to both the planet and departmental budgets!
