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

You have two choices for sending a print job to a library MFD (Multi-function device).  You can send your print job from a library computer or you can send your print job from your personal device.

Full instructions on how to print or scan can be found at IT's Printing page

Some tips:

  • Black & White, single sided 8.5"x11" are the default print settings. If you want colour, double sided, and/or 11"x17, make sure to select the colour printer and correct settings from the Print Menu before you send your job to the MFD.
  • You will need to have sufficient funds loaded onto your KPU card to print from any campus MFD.  To add money or top off your account balance, visit any Library Service Counter (we accept cash, credit or debit cards).. 
  • To log into an MFD, tap your KPU card on the black scanner to the right of the screen on the machine (there is a red arrow on the front of the machine pointing to the scanner).  Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.

Stuck? Just ask any library employee.

COPYING & FAXING

Copying

Go to a MFD (Multi-function device).  They look like photocopiers and you can use it to print/copy/scan. All the machines copy in color and black and white.

Some tips:

  • To log into an MFD, tap your KPU card on the black scanner to the right of the screen on the machine (there is a red arrow on the front of the machine pointing to the scanner). Specify the settings that you want, and make copies. You'll find step-by-step instructions on the machines or at IT's Printing page
  • Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.

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

 

Faxing

The Library does not have any fax 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. All of the MFD (multi-function device) machines default to scan in colour.  You have two choices: you can scan and send your material to your KPU email address or you can scan to a USB stick.

Some tips:

  • To log into an MFD, tap your KPU card on the black scanner to the right of the screen on the machine (there is a red arrow on the front of the machine pointing to the scanner). Specify the settings that you want, and scan your documents. You'll find step-by-step instructions on the machines or at IT's Printing page
  • Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Even though scanning is free, once you are logged into the machine, someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.

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

 

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.
