1971-1974 : The function was known as Printing & Multiprint Services (Manager - G.Shawcross, Foreman - J. Stafford, Duplicating - H. Grossberg). The department was also listed under Institute Services (Director - D. Roe). (Source: Telephone Directories)

1983 : In the December telephone directory, G. Shawcross and R. Tomic were listed as departmental staff members.
1984 : In January, the Vice-President Administration, Tom Sosa, announced the Print Shop was to close in July because of outdated equipment and continuing deficits. "The Printing Department supplied the Institute total typesetting and printing needs until the mid-60s when the press run of THE RYERSONIAN was contracted out after the paper expanded to eight pages. By the early 1970s the academic calendar had outgrown Ryerson's facilities and its last year just 15% of Ryerson's printing requirements were handled internally". (FORUM, January 27, 1984)
