Printing from your own device (BYOD)

We are currently working on a new BYOD printing solution, and hope to have that up and running for library customers soon. In the meantime, you can use the APNK computers to do printing.

NOTE: We previously had a BYOD printing solution using Google CloudPrint. Google has now discontinued the service, so if you have previously used this, you will find that it no longer works.


Scanning

There are two HP scanner models currently used in APNK libraries: the FN1 and the FN2.

Use the images (right) to identify the model your library has, then follow the relevant process from the options provided below.
