Printing: Quick Start Guide

Printing at Carleton

PaperCut is Carleton's print management solution. Documents get sent to Carleton printers through PaperCut, in two ways:

  • Through Webprint (available from any browser)

  • Through the PaperCut application on Carleton-managed computers

    • This runs silently in the background for most faculty and staff, but presents a login screen on shared-use computers and for some people who have to print from multiple accounts.
