IV Printer Maintenance

The printer in IV is always out of paper. If it isn't out of paper, there is some kind of jam or swipe connection problem or toner problem or dead animal inside it that makes a noise when you try to print anything.


I know no one can really anticipate the technical/biological problems with that printer, but can we at least put it behind a proctor's station so that people don't take the paper out for their own printers? I have heard people say they take paper out of the printer and I'm sick of being punished for others' selfishness by having my print dollars taken away for jobs that don't print.


Maybe, since proctoring is not exactly the busiest job in the world, the IV proctor can also be a printer monitor. Put the swiper on the desk, put the printer behind the desk, and the proctor can hand the kid their print job (and maybe a stapler). They could also report problems as they see them happening to the IT department. Maybe the technical problems will get fixed sooner that way.


I'm sick of wasting at least a third of my print dollars on jobs that don't print from the IV printer because of connection errors or no paper.
