The library is available for:
- research and study
- small group work
- recreational reading
- learning preparation and assignment tasks
- technology loans
- printing / photocopying
Using the new Papercut System -
The library has two colour printers available for students.
tudents can log in to the Papercut
site with their normal username and password, at the address http://papercut.parra.catholic.edu.au:9191/user
and see how much credit they have on their Papercut account. Student accounts start with $0.00 on them.
Students wanting to use the colour printers in the library need to put credit onto their Papercut account. They can do this by buying cards in the value of $2 and $5 at reception, and then going to the Papercut site and redeeming the card there.
The library printer still costs the same that it did previously.
Students can now print from their iPads while at school, as long as they have credit on their Papercut account.
Students should only print to library printers when they are in the library and are not to leave class to pick up material they have printed.
Lastly, as per the assessment handbooks, the staff handbook and other sources - "The use of College facilities on the due date for the printing/ finalising of assessment tasks is not permitted."
