Live@LaG Print manages printing in the lab and classroom environments. Live@LaG Print assists the College in understanding the academic printing needs of students, allowing us to fine tune printing policies to match those needs. Live@LaG Print allows students to monitor how many pages are in each print job, as well as a history of the print jobs they have sent. There are also features that allows users to see what their print jobs environmental impact is on trees, carbon, and energy.LaGuardia implemented a print
management solution during the Fall 2010 semester to help the College meet sustainability guidelines put in place by the City University of New York administration and to manage the rising
cost of printing at the college. Doing so has enabled the College to go green and to use the
money saved from the reduction in paper usage to continually provide the latest
and greatest technology to benefit all students. For more information on the College's sustainability efforts, visit laguardia.edu/sustainability.
