Riverton, Utah - Let’s Get Your Book Ready to Print
After you have worked diligently researching and writing a family or personal history, what are the next steps you need to follow in getting the manuscript ready for the printer?
Carol Holland has worked at BYU Printing Services for over 30 years, being mostly involved with digital printing. BYU’s first digital printer (Xerox Docutech) was installed in 1992. They have kept up with industry advancements in printers ever since. Carol was a copy center supervisor for several years, working with the very first color copier that came out from Canon in 1989. She was the manager of the production digital center at BYU Printing Services for 15 years. In 1999 she earned her Electronic Document Printing Professional Certification and renewed it in 2005. That same year she changed assignments and became a customer consultant, working almost exclusively with off-campus customers who had written family or personal histories. The scope of her job became more consultation than management. She helped customers prepare their manuscripts properly for printing and oversaw the printing and binding of their books. Her assignment again changed and she went from working with family history customers to working more with campus customers, with a specialty in digital printing.
