Downloading and Printing Items Found in Mobile Searches

Downloading documents

It is not recommended that you download documents in PDF or other formats directly to your device.  Several resources in this guide offer the ability to save documents to Google Drive and other cloud services for later downloading using a laptop or desktop computer.   For more information on saving documents for later downloading within a particular resource, please go to the Saving Documents tab.       

Printing documents

You cannot print documents to the MC campus Ricoh printers from a mobile device (e.g. phones or tablets).  Here are some alternative suggestions:

  • Use your personal printer that pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth
  • Use a campus laptop/desktop to send a document to a Ricoh printer
  • Use your personal laptop to send a document to the Ricoh printer.  Note: you laptop has to be connected to the campus network in order for this to work.
