Copying & printing at KPU is paid through the PaperCut print management system. When you pick up your KPU card at the Library, we connect your PaperCut account to the card so you can just "tap and go" at the machines.

Click on the PaperCut icon on any KPU computer desktop to check your balance or load money. We can also load money into your account for you at the Library Service Desk (we accept cash, credit or debit cards).

Need to print/copy on campus but forgot your KPU card at home? No problem. The funds are in your PaperCut account, not on your KPU card. So as long as there are funds in your account, you can still print/copy. Just login to the printer/copiers with your student number and password instead of tapping your card.

PRINTING

1. Log in at a KPU computer and send the print job as you normally would. The default printer is black & white - if you want colour, ensure you select the colour printer. The machines also default to single sided printing. If you want double sided printing you must select this option before sending the print job.

2. Go to the print/copy/scan machines and tap in with your KPU card to release the print job(s). You'll find step-by-step instructions on the machine.

SOME ADVICE Remember to tap out with your card  or press the Logout button when the machine is finished printing. You don't want someone else to come along and use your account to pay for their copying!

We are happy to help: if you get stuck just ask any Library employee.

COPYING & FAXING

Copying

Go to the print/copy/scan machines. You need to use the colour machine if you want to copy in colour. Tap in with your KPU card to activate the machine and make copies. You'll find step-by-step instructions on the machines.

Faxing

The Library does not have any faxing services.  The KSA offers free local faxing to all students.  If their offices are closed, the Bookstore also provides local and long distance faxing for a fee.

SCANNING

Free Scanning!

There is no charge for scanning items in the Library and all machines are self serve.  You have two choices: you can scan and send your material to your KPU email address or you can scan to a USB stick.  For the latter, just take the document(s) you need to scan along with a USB stick (or SD card) to a print/copy/scan machine and follow the instructions posted on the machine.

To scan in colour you don't need to use the colour machines; all the print/copy/scan machines will scan in either colour or black & white.

$$$$ OWING THE LIBRARY MONEY $$$$

 

If you are late returning your borrowed library materials, you will be fined.  We have different fine rates, depending on what kind of materials you are borrowing.  We may also charge you a fee for any lost or damaged materials.  You can check your library account to see when materials are due and if you have any money owing.  If you do owe money you can pay online through your library account using Paypal, by phone, or in person at any campus library Service Desk.

 

SOME ADVICE  You'll want to pay any outstanding fees promptly.  If you owe money you may not be able to register for classes or obtain your transcripts, and if you owe over $25 you will not be able to borrow any more library materials until the account is settled.
