After sending a document to print, you’ll see a PrintMe screen. You’ll be asked for an email address but you can click Skip as you don’t need to enter one when printing from a library PC.


Printer code on screen

When your document has been successfully sent for printing, you’ll see a code on the PC screen. Make a note of this as you’ll need this code to retrieve your document.
