Think before you print

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Northwestern University Library encourages all students and staff to "Think Before You Print", especially during the month of April for our annual PaperLESS Month initiative. April 2013 marks the Library's 4th annual PaperLESS Month.

In 2012 we reduced printing in the library by 12.54% over the previous year's PaperLESS month printing rate. Our goal for 2013 is to reduce printing another 10% over last year's April print rates.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you need to print:
  • Use "Print Preview" and print only what you need.
  • "Print" to PDF using CutePDF or Adobe Acrobat Writer.
  • Save to a flash drive or email documents to yourself.
  • Print on both sides of the paper and use narrower margins.
