If you have not set SU_Student_WPA2 as a default network, it is recommended that you do so. Users connected to the SU_Guest wifi network -- now Airport's preference for automatic sign on, cannot print. For more information, look in the left sidebar of this page.
Click the button in the top left of your screen.
Go to System Preferences
In the lower left corner, click the
Right-click (Or hold down the CTRL button while regular clicking) on the upper gray portion of the Add a Printer menu

Type in the URL: smb://srv-pc-print.adm.suffolk.edu/printername There are five printers in the library. Replace printername with one of those five names, such as smb://srv-pc-print.adm.suffolk.edu/LibraryMain02
Change the information in the Name field to match the name of the printer you put in the URL field. e.g. if the URL reads smb://srv-pc-print.adm.suffolk.edu/LibraryMain02, type LibraryMain02 into the name field
Next to Use, set the dropdown to Generic PostScript Printer
In the window that opens, check off the box for Duplex Printing Unit
The printer will now be listed in the Print & Scan menu
Before Printing, the PaperCut Client also needs to be installed. To install the PaperCut client on a Mac, visit the page for installing the client on a Mac in this guide.
Open the PaperCut Client from either your Mac's dock, or the Applications folder
A small blue popup should open. This indicates your balance.
Open the document to print
Go to File
Select the printer from the dropdown that has been added, such as LibraryMain02
First a window informing you of the print job's cost will open. Verify the cost of your job and click
A second window informing you that your job has been sent to the queue will open. Click
If you would like to verify that the job is in the queue, click on the Details link of the PaperCut balance popup
The PaperCut account homepage will open. Click on Jobs Pending Release
Any jobs waiting for release can be viewed here. If you have sent any by mistake, you can also use this screen to cancel them.
Airport has begun defaulting some users to the SU_Guest wireless network, which cannot connect to the library printers.
How can I tell if this is the problem I'm having? One of the primary indications of this issue is seeing a box like this after you send out a print job:
How do I switch to the SU_Student_WPA2 Network:
Click on the wifi symbol in the uppper right corner of your screen
Highlight the SU_Student_WPA2 Network
You may be prompted to sign in again. If so, this could take one of two forms:
You are prompted for just your network username & password -- these are the same as what you use for your email
You are prompted to sign into your MacBook as an administrator before you can enter your network credentials.
First, sign in with your MacBook password (hint this means you'll already see a username, and you just need to type a password)
Then in the next box that prompts for a username & password, enter your email address username (leave off the @suffolk.edu) and password to log onto the network.
I can't seem to get it to change my password: To force your computer to ask you to log in again, you'll need to delete any saved passwords for the WPA2_Student network from your keychain. To do that follow these steps:
Select Go from the top menu of your Mac
Choose Keychain Access
Scroll through, and highlight any entries that refer to SU_Student_WPA2
At any point that PaperCut prompts you to log in, use the adm.suffolk.edu\username method, where you enter your email username and password. Often, Macs will default to showing your Mac login ID. Remove this and re-enter your PaperCut username and password, not your computer username and password.
Setting up multiple printers
Library recommends setting up at least two library printers in order to have a
backup printer for times of high use.
