New Student Record not in PaperCut

It can take up to 2 days for a new student's record to be added to Papercut.  If they are not in Papercut but are in Workflows, OneCard and/or Banner with a Student record:

  1. Go ahead and make their card.
  2. Let the student know their record has not yet been loaded into Papercut and therefore they will not be able to print or copy yet.

Note: In the interim they can login to the Guest stations and use the Guest Print cards.

  1. Ask them to come back in a few days to have their card linked to Papercut.
  2. If they are still not in Papercut, refer them to IT.

Students who are also Employees

Employee cards must be assigned to the person's Employee (username) account in PaperCut.

Student cards must be assigned to the person's Student (student number) account in PaperCut.

NEVER edit a PaperCut account status e.g. from Personal account to a Shared account. Library staff are not authorized to make this change. Refer the patron to IT if their account status is incorrect.
