Don’t Forget: Hurry Up and Add Print Credit Before the Holiday!

download (1)

Thanksgiving is almost here! Just remember, before you rush out and max your credit cards on Black Friday deals, you might want to first use those cards to add some print credit before the holiday. If you are planning on doing any printing at the library this weekend, make sure you have enough credit on your account. Please keep in mind that although you can purchase print credit online at CASHnet, your credit must be added to your account manually before you can print.

To add print credit, you must show your receipt for purchased credit to the Information Services staff member on duty at the Law Library Information Services Desk. Due to the University holiday hours and reduced staff availability at the Services Desk, it may prove difficult to add print credit over the holiday weekend. Your last chance to easily add print credit will be Wednesday, November 26 before 5PM. That means you’ve got some pre Black Friday purchasing to do this year! So before you get caught up in the holiday rush, avoid the long lines by heading over to the Information Services Desk to add your print credit TODAY! Hurry, before time runs out!!!

Spamfilter at Pepperdine

Spam is every bit the reality in our email inboxes as the junkmail that comes in our postboxes; though often more obnoxious and potentially more dangerous. The University has made great improvements in the last few years to protect users from spam.

If you suspect that you’ve missed a message because it was blocked by the spamfilter, or if you’d like to customize the features of the anti-spam services here at Pepperdine, log in to spamfilter.pepperdine.edu. Provided by a company called Sophos, this system will allow you to retrieve any messages that might have been incorrectly labeled as spam as well as manually add email addresses that you wish to allow to email you, by-passing the filter, or block from sending you email.

Additionally, University Information Technology provides a list of Frequently Asked Questions with answers. However you may wish to review all their help files concerning spam to educate yourself fully.

Finally, Microsoft Outlook also has Spam/Junk E-mail controls. Here’s an excellent overview video (approx. 6mins):

Simply follow the link provided to CASHnet, enter your information (including CWID) and you’ll be able to purchase print credit. Allowable amounts range from $10 to $40.

Once your transaction is complete, show your receipt to the Information Services staff member on duty at the Law Library Public Services Desk to receive credit (you don’t have to print it, merely show the screen of your phone, laptop or device). There are no paper forms to complete.

Please note: Do not attempt to add credit after hours, or when you are not able to show your receipt to the Information Services staff. If you cannot show your receipt, your account cannot be credited.
