Printing on Non-Standard Paper Sizes

Posted by:

Follow the steps below if someone wants to print on a non-standard size of paper (i.e., something that cannot be auto-detected by the printer). NOTE: You should not need to do this for A3, A4, or other international standard sizes.

  1. Place the paper in the bypass tray.
  2. Log in to the Library Student Copier (it doesn’t matter who you log in as).
  3. Go into the Copy module.
  4. Tap the “Paper” icon.
  5. Select the bypass tray.
  6. Tap the “Change Tray Setting” icon.
  7. Choose the “Custom Size” option. (Note: this option cannot be selected unless the paper is in the bypass tray.)
  8. Place the paper on the glass and take its measurements, then put the paper back in the bypass tray.
  9. Enter the measurements. (Make sure you know which side is X and which side is Y.)
  10. Tap OK to save the measurements, then close all of the open windows.
  11. Log off.

Before sending the document to the printer, ensure that the paper size set on the computer matches the measurements entered for the bypass tray.

The paper tray does not need to be selected in Printer Properties. Library Student Copier will automatically detect that the bypass tray needs to be used for the custom-sized document.

Checking Out Items to Visitors

Posted by:

Visitors may check out headphones and dry erase markers from the front desk — there is no need to ask for their driver’s license or any kind of collateral.

Visitors may also use the 24-hour locker (Locker #14) to store personal belongings. They may use the Locker #14 key, but they must return it to the front desk before leaving the library. Send an email notifying the library staff that a visitor is using Locker #14, because the key will not be checked out. Visitors should come to the front desk and ask for the key when they would like to retrieve their belongings.

Vending Machine

Posted by:

The vending machine is located in the foyer of the library, next to the lockers. Any problems with the vending machine should be reported to Student Development:

Susan Turnquist, Student Development Administrative Assistant – susan.turnquist@northwestu.edu.

If the vending machine malfunctions and a patron complains, you may give him/her a refund using money from the cash box at the front desk. Make sure to record the transaction on the cash box ledger. Write the reason for the refund in the “Name” column and put the amount refunded in the “Misc” column as a negative number.

Door alarms

Posted by:

Locations

There are four door alarms in the library:

  • West stairwell
  • West door of the H-214 study space
  • Two in the North stairwell. One of which must be accessed from the basement side of the door.
Arming/Disarming
  1. Open the key cabinet using the key from either the top drawer of Dorothy’s file cabinet or from the bottom drawer of Adam’s desk.
  2. The alarm key is located on the right side in the #9 slot of the key cabinet.
  3. To arm the door, turn the key full counter-clockwise. A red light should come on for about 10 seconds to indicate that the door is armed.
  4. To disarm or turn off the alarm, turn the key fully clockwise.
Battery Replacement

The alarms will beep intermittently like a smoke alarm when the battery needs to be replaced. Contact maintenance to have the battery replaced.

Fuller Theological Seminary Students

Posted by:

When setting up a library account for Fuller students, scan the barcode on their student ID cards to generate their account number (it should begin with an L). This number is their Fuller library card number and they use it to log in to their Fuller library accounts.

After you have set up their library account, let the student know that they should use their Fuller library card number to log in to the NU Library My Account system. Make sure that there is an email address on file for them so they can use the “Set/reset password” link to set up their account.

Modifying Page Numbers with Section Breaks in Microsoft Word

Posted by:

The key to using different types of numbering in the same document is section breaks. Once you’ve added a section break to your document (you can add as many as you need), you’ll be able to restart your page numbers there, and/or apply a different style.

Here’s an overview of the steps you need to follow.

  1. Place your cursor on the page where you want the first section to end.
  2. Go to the Page Layout tab, then click the Breaks command.
  3. Choose Next Page from the menu.
  4. A section break will be added, creating a new section on the next page.
  5. To continue, select your header or footer in the new section.
  6. Go to the Design tab (which should open by default when you click into the header/footer), and deselect the Link to Previous command.
  7. Now you can modify the page numbers in your new section depending on what you need.
    • To restart your numbering, click the Page Number command, then choose Format Page Numbers. From there, you’ll be able to select Start at: 1.
    • To change the font, color, size, or other style/format of your numbering, select the page number, then go back to the Home tab.
