Pay Printing Begins May 6 at the College

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Copyright Leo ReynoldsAs part of its commitment to sustainability, both environmental and financial, Okanagan College is now using print management software to implement a charge for all student printing and copying on campus. The Pay Per Print model will be launched for students on Monday, May 6.

Students will continue to print and copy for free on Okanagan College campuses until May 6. An information campaign for students will begin Tuesday, April 23, to inform current and incoming students about the new processes involved in printing and copying on campus.

Information on the new Pay Per Print model, how to add credit to your account, and printing costs can be found here. An FAQ has also been developed to help smooth the transition and answer common questions. Students can purchase credit online via PayPal beginning May 6, or cash vouchers may be purchased beginning May 1 at the Kelowna Campus Store or any Okanagan College Library. Vouchers can be loaded onto Pay Per Print accounts beginning May 6. Click here to login to your Pay Per Print account. The Terms and Conditions of print and copy accounts can be found here.

Please note that printers in the Library are set to print double-sided as the default. We strongly encourage users to use the “print preview” feature prior to printing, to avoid printing unnecessary pages. 

New APA Guide to Electronic References!

APA ManualHaving trouble with those stubborn APA citations? What is a DOI? How do I cite a Facebook post? Do I need a date for a website? With the new online guide to citing electronic resources in APA style, you can leave your worries behind.

Access to this resource is only available to OC students and staff, and login using your 300 number and surname is required from on and off-campus. Printing for personal use is permitted, but distribution of multiple copies is not.

Some highlights of this resource include:

  • Easy to use table, “How to cite something you found on a website”
  • DOI information
  • Examples for citing e-books, Wikipedia entries, corporate reports, press releases, music recordings, photographs, podcasts, TV episodes, streaming videos (ie. YouTube), mobile apps, lecture notes, Twitter updates, blog posts, Facebook status updates, and more!

Click here to access this new resource.
