Windows Users

Staff who have Windows PCs issued to them by MCLA will automatically have 'BlazerPrint' appear in their list of printers to print to. Select it in your list of available printers and print to it. Your print job will be held in the BlazerPrint virtual printer queue where you can release it on any BlazerPrint copier on campus.

In the event you do not have this printer listed, please contact the MCLA Tech Help Desk at 413-662-5276.
