Biographical history

1960s : According to the Ryerson telephone directories, this function was known as Printing Production.
1970 : The August telephone directory listed two functions, namely, Printing Production and Institute Services - Duplicating
1971-1974 : The function was known as Printing & Multiprint Services. The department was also listed under Institute Services
1975-1983 : The department was listed in the telephone directories as Printing & Multi-Copy Services. The department continued to be listed under Institute Services
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: In January, the Vice-President Administration, Tom Sosa, announced the Print Shop was to close in July because of outdated equipment and continuing deficits.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".
1984 : On July 11, the Print Shop closed.
1985 : A related function, Multiprint Services, continued and remained within Institute Services.
1989 : The Mail Room function and Multiprint Services were joined to form Multiprint Services and Mail Room Services. This department continued under the umbrella of Institute Services.
1994 : Department name changed to Ancillary Services.
1995 : In September, Multiprint/Mailroom Services was amalgamated with the Bookstore in preparation for the introduction of custom publishing. (FORUM 8Sep95)
1997 : Multiprint, the Mail Room, and several other activities are placed (seemingly, as separate areas) under a new umbrella department, General Services.
2000 : The former Multiprint Services, the One-Card Office, and the CCS PrintCentre amalgamated under the management of Ancillary Services - General Services Division, with a name change to Duplication and Printing Services. (Campus Memo, Sep00)
