Printing and Editing

If you use your own device - laptop, tablet, smart phone - to search for information or edit documents, you will not be able to send your item(s) to the library printers.

Printing from Emails


You will usually find that when you try to print out the text of an email, the final version looks nothing like what you can see on the screen.

Here is an example of an email about money saving:

To print from an email you will usually find three dots in the top right of the email window. Click on those to select Print.

However, rather than the screen above, this is what you will see:

The way round the problem is to highlight the email text, with any images and copy the text into a Word document. You can then print out that document.

Printing from the Library Computers


There are a couple of ways that you can do this – you can email documents, pictures or spreadsheets to yourself and then print these out as attachments (see our page on Emails for information on how to do this).

Alternatively you can save documents etc to a USB stick. Once you have logged on to the library computer, plug your stick into the monitor (left side) and follow on-screen instructions to find the Documents folder.


Select the folder and your USB stick should display as the D drive.
