Cloud Print: Getting Started

Make sure you understand that Cloud Print is in beta and this is not a service that CAIT guarantees before using Google Cloud Print!

Before getting started with Cloud Print you should make sure your CalArts Google account has been granted access to the printers.  It's a quick process, but if you don't see the printers like we show in the steps below please get in contact with CAIT at cait@calarts.edu!

1. Log in to your CalArts Email Account

You will only be able to access the Library printers through your CalArts @alum.calarts.edu Google account.  Head over to http://mail.alum.calarts.edu to login!

If you have multiple Google accounts you will probably need to set your CalArts account as default.  Send us a note if you have any problems setting your account as default!

2. Go to the Cloud Print Dashboard

In your browser of choice head over to the Cloud Print dashboard at https://www.google.com/cloudprint

Go to the Cloud Print Dashboard

3. Click on Printers

Click on Printers, just below Print Jobs, and you should see both Library printers listed.  

If you do then you're all set!  If you don't, send us a note at cait@calarts.edu.

Click on Printers

Send a Test Print!

Before you print your thesis or final project through Cloud Print we highly suggest printing something that isn't too important, that could screw up without causing a problem, just to get a hang of how it goes.  Remember that this is a beta product but we are eager to help if you encounter any problems!

Here are some guides to get you started with Cloud Print:
