Welcome to your university library

This guide contains some Library related information that will be most useful in the first couple of weeks of your very first semester. As there are some changes to the Library in 2022, returning students may also find this of use.

Using the Printers

In the Library and around campus you will see Kyocera MFDs (Multi Function Devices).  They look like standard photocopiers but include printing and scanning options and you can use any that are in student facing areas.  Have a look at the tabs on this page for more information.

You can send documents to print from  student PCs in the library OR from your personal device to any MFD (multi function device) on campus. You can find out more about printing from your own device on the next tab..

  • Complete your document in the relevant package (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc) and then send to print.  From the printer options menu choose from the following:
    • myprintblack on pcut-prd-ss01 - (set as default)
    • myprintcolour on pcut-prd-ss01
       
  • Scan your student ID card on the white card scanner image at the front of the machine OR press the Username and Password button on the display screen to log in via the touch panel.
     
  •  A screen will open showing the number of documents waiting to be printed.
    • To print all jobs – click on the Print All  one touch button
    • To print/delete selected jobs, click on the Print Release Button
       
  • The screen will show a list of jobs waiting to be printed, click on the one you would like to print/delete and press the print button or the delete button.

Your documents will then be printed. 

TIP:  Give the printer time to download from the server, especially if your document is large; we often find uncollected documents left on the printers.

 

Printing from your own device.

Simply follow these steps:

  1. Log-in to your University email account.
  2. Use your University email account to email the file you wish to print to papercut@derby.ac.uk.

  4. Use any MFD to print as outlined above.
