I am trying to discover best way to keep track of printing from Lightroom rather than from printer data.

LR 5.7, at least, notes Print and Export events in each photo's history.

However I use several other practices in my workflow to keep track of what I've printed:

  1. I export a copy of everything sent to a printer to a separate folder.

  2. I use a color label to indicate that a photo has been printed (and if I want to see exactly what I can either check the photo's history or check the image of the same name in my "Printed" folder.)

If my workflow didn't leave color labels free for this purpose I would use a Keyword Tag like "Printed" for this purpose.
