On-line Inventory: 


Primary storage for all printer materials is the DLMC storage room (accessible by all poster-printing and all DLMC staff). Only a couple of rolls of paper will be stored there.

Overflow storage for printer paper is currently Case-Geyer 460 (accessible by Denise Sheeley, Dan Wheeler, and ITS media support staff only).


Denise Sheeley ITS has been doing all the ordering for this printer; she should be notified when we are getting low on supplies (not when we are out, hopefully!).
