We suggest the following packages, and please review all packages and select the correct one for your laptop (64- or 32-bit, etc):

  • If you're at the University City main campus, download 'Library_ColorDetect_Printer.'

  • If you're at the Queen Lane campus, download 'QLCOLOR.'

When installing these drivers, you may receive a Windows SmartScreen error window. Click "Run Anyway" or "More Info" to complete the installation.
