    Backup Solutions


    In order to provide more streamlined service and cost savings to the University, SMU works with ImageNet to provide multifunction printing solutions for departments across campus. Staff and faculty are encouraged to use these printers in lieu of personal printers that can add extra ink/toner costs while providing less reliability. PaperCut is the primary solution to printing services in the libraries for students and the general public.
