CHANGES IN JOB SCHEDULING
Please allow extra time for processing your print materials while our staff hours are limited due to COVID-19 and other job restrictions. It is recommended that you send your work via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org attaching your job file/s along with a request form stating your requirements. However, you may also bring in hard-copy originals and fill out physical request slips to place in the Copy Inbox in the front copy/mail room (CC1-119). Immediate service (while-you-wait or same day) may not be available. Priority will be given to jobs allowing for two or more work days to complete (Mon. – Fri.). 48hr. or longer, scheduled jobs will be completed in the order they are received. Please note, walk-up, self-service is available to LMC employees who have a copy code and have been instructed on how to operate the machine. Face-masks are required, and only two people may be in the copy room at one time.
