Printing

NB: the "OK button" is the oval button on the control panel.
When it is illuminated orange the unit waiting for instructions.
When it is illuminated blue the unit is ready.

You can send a document to print from your computer and retrieve it when it is convenient, or you can print directly from a USB memory stick.

 

Printing from your computer

You will need your computer to be linked up to the Tyndale House network by a wired connection at your desk.

To install the printer on a PC:
Press and hold Windows key + R (see right).
In the Run box that pops up, type \\193.60.91.120 then press Enter.
Double-click on KONICA MINOLTA C364SeriesPS.
Wait for drivers to install.

This should work in Windows 7, Vista or XP.

Colour or greyscale?
Remember that colour printing costs more.

Printing from a PC will default to greyscale.
To get colour printing, in your print dialogue go to Properties or Preferences, click the Quality tab and select Colour.

 

To install the printer on a Macintosh
This is more complex than on a PC. If you want to do it yourself you can find view a video for installing the printer on a Mac OS here. If you would like assistance please ask for help from the library staff, who will refer you to the right person.

Colour or greyscale?
Remember that colour printing costs more.

To ensure that your Mac prints greyscale by default:

Go to print (press Apple & P).
In the print dialogue look for the pull down menu which provides more settings.
Select Quality, and on Select Color choose Grayscale.
At Preset select Save As ... 
Call it something like Greyscale or Mono.

After this you can choose between colour or greyscale printing using the standard or greyscale Preset.


To print using the KONICA MINOLTA printer:

When you send a document to print you will be asked to set an ID and password so that you can find it on the machine when you want to print it. Make these as simple and easy to rembember as possible (e.g. your initials) Note: the ID is case-sensitive. This will happen with each document that you print.

To retrieve your printing
Insert your payment card into the EMOS card reader.
On the printer tap the “User box” button (bottom right)
Tap the “Secure print” option.
Type your “ID”.
Tap “Password” and type your password.
Tap the image of the document.
Tap “Print”.
Press the oval blue button.

 

Printing from a USB stick

Only .pdf files and Word .docx files can be printed directly from a USB stick.
Insert your USB stick in the slot around the corner of the unit to the right of the control panel.

Tap the “External Memory” option.
Select the file that you wish to print.
Tap the “Print” option.
Press the OK buttom which should be illuminated blue.

 

For stapled booklets or folding on the Konica Minolta:

Take a moment to familiarise yourself with the Properties of the printer.
There are several options that you need to notice:

    • Basic tab: paper size and orientation.
    • Layout tab: single or double sided printing.
    • Finish tab: stapling and folding.
    • Quality tab: colour/greyscale and resolution. Set to greyscale by default.

In a printing dialogue, enter into the printing properties (sometimes called preferences).

In the Quality Tab: set it Color or Greyscale.

In the Finishing Tab: you can select how you want to finish your print job; among others you can select stapling or folding.

See the images below to get a better idea:

 

 


Scanning

SCANNING FACILITIES:

The see-through scanner, which you can take to your desk and install on your computer, is especially good for scanning books because you don't have to keep turning the book upside-down. This is kept in the library office.

The Photocopier is also set up as a very fast scanner.
It sends files to a server for downloading to your own computer for 2p per scan.

 

 


Scanning on the Konica Minolta photocopier

  • You can scan to the Tyndale file server or to an email address.
    Scans send to the file server and left overnight will be processed by OCR software into a searchable text.


    Scanning to the file server

    Press the Menu button.
    Tap the “Scan” option.
    Place the original on the flatbed or in the document feeder.
    Tap “SMB Scans”.
    To change the filename.
    Tap “E-mail Settings”(this is paradoxical since this is not the email option).
    Tap the keyboard-icon next to “Filename”.
    Change the filename.
    Tap “OK”.
    Tap “OK”.
    Press the “OK” button to scan.
    If you wish to scan more pages.
    Keep loading pages on the flatbed or in the document feeder.
    Press the “OK” button to scan the next item/batch.
    When done tap “Finish”.
    Press the “OK” button to send your scan to the fileserver.
  • After the last page, make a note of the number of pages and put 2p per page into the money box.


    Scanning to an email address

    Press the Menu button.
    Tap the “Scan” option.
    Place the original on the flatbed or in the document feeder.
    Tap “Direct Input”.
    Insert the recipient’s email address.
    Press the “OK” button to scan.
    If you wish to load more “originals”.
    Keep loading “originals” on the flatbed or in the document feeder.
    Press the “OK” button to scan the next item/batch.
    When done tap “Finish”.
    Press the “OK” button to send your scan to the recipient.

    After the last page, make a note of the number of pages and put 2p per page into the money box.

 

To collect your scans

If you wait an hour, the scans will become searchable
(ie they are processed by an Optical Character Recognition program and the filename is appended with "OCR")

You need a wired internet connection, so look for a network lead at your computer, and look for the sign with IP numbers etc. Then:

On a PC: type or paste \\193.60.91.120 into your File Explorer Address Bar.
(Can't see it? Right-click on Start; click on "Explore"; click on "View", "Toolbars" and tick "Address Bar". Still can't see it? Right-click next to "Help";drag the Address bar from the bottom-right of the toolbars into the middle)

Copy your files onto your computer or memory device.

On a Mac: In Finder, open the menu "Go/Connect to Server", paste or write afp://193.60.91.1/Scans . (Please not that there is a 0-30 minute delay before your scan turns up, because of a synchronization mechanism.)

Please click here for further information on the ins and outs of the scanning process.

Reading, searching and annotating scans

There is a variety of free software you can use.
Your operating system has built-in search software which sometimes works.
Google desktop is good, but what I really recommend is:

1) on a PC use FileLocator Lite
- a fast search with very flexible search tools, which shows results like a concordance of lines within your file.
- right-click on the folder your articles are in for a quick search of just that folder.
2) on Mac or PC use Zotero with Firefox
- the searchable scans are automatically indexed, so searching is instantaneous
- you can add notes or real bibliography.
3) on a  PC, view & search PDF files using Foxit - a free reader which is better than Acrobat
- and it is easy to select and copy, or highlight and comment, then save your annotated copy
- you can search the open document or all the documents in a folder.

If you really want to be green, and work smarter, consider scanning instead.
