How to Be a Person: Using the New Printers

Introducing your new best friend

Currently the library is home to three test printers, one across from the Circ desk, one behind Helpline, and one on the third floor near the periodicals–but all the old Canon printers will be replaced by the new Ricoh models come this January.

Olin Hacks


Club Olin, in all its architectural glory.

Ah, Olin–or Club Olin as I’ve so often heard it referred to affectionately by my wise and cultured upperclassman friends–we all experience this magical land in one way or another.
