What it is: Papercut is a new print management system designed to be an important component of the GREENprint@Naz sustainability initiative. We are embarking on a campus-wide effort to reduce unnecessary paper and toner consumption in support of Nazareth's sustainability goals. The deployment of Papercut in public computing areas is expected to significantly reduce wasted paper and conserve our natural resources.
What it does: Papercut gathers statistics on campus printing use. This information will be used to help formulate future campus-wide printing policies and to educate the campus about the environmental impacts of printing.
Web printing: Papercut allows you to submit print jobs from your personally owned computer if you are connected to the campus wireless network (Naz Open WiFi). To use Web Print, please go to the following site and and log in with your MyNaz username and password: http://NazPrint.naz.edu
Then, navigate to Web Print. You will see a list of printers that are accessible via Web Print. Not all printers are Web Print enabled. Please choose the printer that is closest to you. You can download instructions for web printing here.
Environmental impact: On the NazPrint site, you can view the environmental impact of your printing in the Summary section. There you will find information on how many print jobs and pages you have printed. You will also see the environmental equivalents of your printing over time (Trees, Carbon, Energy).
See GreenPrint@Naz to learn more about sustainability initiatives on campus.

In order to offer the Nazareth community a standardized and fully functional survey tool, Qualtrics has been selected for use by all faculty, staff and students.
This is to replace the need for the myriad of survey solutions that individuals and departments have had to rely on in the past. There is no longer a need to use very basic free online survey tools, nor will you ever need to pay out of pocket or department funds for having a fully functional survey tool. You may also find this to be a great alternative to using Scantron paper forms.
Any member of the Nazareth community with a Nazareth username/password can access Qualtrics and login as a "read-only" user. In order to utilize the tools for creating surveys, you will need to submit a request to have your "read-only" account status upgraded.
