I'd need more information about what OS is being used and whether this printer is local on a client computer and shared from there or a network printer on a print server, but generally, if this printer has been installed on a Windows client or print server you go to that computer's Control Panel for printers, double-click on the printer icon to Open it, Sellect Properties from the menu, and select the Sharing tab. You click on the button for Share This Printer, type in a Share Name, and click on the button below that says List in Directory. That should make it visible to anyone on that network who wants to add it. It isn't really in Active Directory but is in DNS, I believe.
