Welcome New Students: Print, Scan, Copy

COVID-19 Update

Library Service during COVID-19

Most of our services can be accessed online through kpu.ca/library.

Our buildings are open and KPU students and employees can browse for library material, receive service at our Service Desks, and use study space and computers in our general areas. Assistance from Librarians can still be accessed online through Ask Us. Our study rooms are currently unavailable.  

Check out KPU Library COVID-19 Response Guide for up to date information about changes to library services.  We ask that you adhere to University pandemic policies while in our spaces. 

If you need assistance, you can chat, call, text or email the library.  We welcome your questions!

Copying and printing is done through the PaperCut Print Management System, which connects your KPU account to campus computers and MFPs (Multi-Function Printers, i.e. photocopier/printers).  You can tap your student card or type in your student number to access MFPs once you send your print job to be printed.

To add credit to your account, you must be on campus and either connected to the KPUSecureStudent network, or logged in to a campus computer. Visit KPU IT's Printing page for instructions

PRINTING

Printing

You have two choices for sending a print job to a library MFP (Multi-function printer).  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 MFP.
  • You will need to have sufficient funds loaded onto your Papercut account to print from any campus MFP.  To add money, you have to be on campus and load credit to your account by credit card.  
  • To log into an MFP, 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.

COPYING & FAXING

Copying

Go to a MFP (Multi-function printer).  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 MFP, 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 on IT's Printing page.
  • You will need to have sufficient funds loaded onto your Papercut account to copy.  To add money, you have to be on campus and load credit to your account by credit card.  
  • Don't forget to log off after you're done!  Someone else could photocopy and use your funds by accident.

Faxing

The library does not offer access to fax machines. The KSA offers free local faxing to students.  

SCANNING

Scanning

There is no charge for scanning items in the Library. All of the MFP (multi-function printer) 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.
