Trial of 90 gsm paper within the Library MFDs
IT Services are in the process of trialing a new type of heavier weight paper within the Student Print Estate.
This will be focussed upon the devices located within the main Library building (all floors and including rooms 039 and 041) and is expected to come into effect from 12PM Friday 15th May.
The purpose of this trial is to asses whether the newer paper can offer a lower jam rate, higher quality of reproduction, reduced staff support overhead, balanced against an improved ability to deal with high coverage duplex mono and colour prints.
The new paper is also considerably whiter than the current choice that has been used previously.
The Library has been chosen due to it being a very high volume location with high footfall and a significant local support presence.
If this exercise is considered to be a success we will asses the operational benefits and economic implication of a longer term switch to this type of paper.
No rise in cost to our customers will occur.
As ever if you have any feedback please do feel free to send it through to the ITS Helpdesk.
