Printing Services — Changing May 19, 2017

Printing Services in Law Library

Please note: As of May 19, 2017, the School of Law will be adopting the university-wide copier/print system for students.  All student printing will go through the Sharp copier/printer units.

The Sharp copier/printing system is accessible to all students at Pepperdine University and at all Pepperdine University campuses in Southern California (this includes the Calabasas location which may be a terrific place to study for the Bar Exam!).

 

The following Text will be changed on May 19, 2017 (after 2017 Spring final exams)

Pepperdine University Law Students are granted 500 pages (no additional cost) for black and white printing at the beginning of each semester.

If you are interested in printing in color, please see THIS PAGE.  The color printing is $0.35 per side of a page and is through the Law Library Sharp Multi-Function Device (fancy copier) and uses a completely different system where the charges go to your Pepperdine ID card.

Black and White Printing is $0.06 per page and is charged to a Law School specific printing account that is NOT tied to your ID card. To add print credit to your account CLICK HERE   (Note that once you add credit, the amount is non-refundable but it does carry over between terms.)

Mac Users, CLICK HERE for the Black and White printer. For color see THIS PAGE.

Please note that the Macintosh installer only works for Macintosh 10.7 and higher. If you have an operating older than 10.6, you will have to either upgrade your system or use our Mobile Print Service FOUND HERE

Microsoft Windows 64-bit Users, CLICK HERE for the Black and White printer
Microsoft Windows 32-bit Users, CLICK HERE for the Black and White printer

If you’re a Windows PC user and unsure which installer to use the following directions.

  1. Click on the Start button and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Security link.Note: If you’re viewing either the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won’t see this link. Just click on the System icon and then proceed to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Security window, click on the System link.
  4. When the System window opens, titled as View basic information about your computer, locate the System area below the oversized Windows logo.
  5. In the System area, look for System type among the other statistics about your computer.The System type will report either a 32-bit Operating System or a 64-bit Operating System.

Color Copier for Printing and Copies in both B&W and Color in the Law Library

Sharp MX-3570N

The Law Library maintains a color copier for Pepperdine users.

Price per color impression is $0.35.  This means if you print a color document that is duplexed (printed on both sides) you will be charged $0.70 for that piece of paper (if there’s color on both sides).

Note that if you choose to print a document that has some pages that are black and white and some that contain color, each black and white page will be charged at $0.06/impression (side of a page of paper) and the color impressions (sides of a page) will be charged at $0.35 each.  Yep, it’s a kinda smart system.

To access this color copier using your laptop or other device please go to THIS PAGE for detailed instructions.

Shared Account Users: For instructions on how to print documents from a personal computer using a shared account, please review this guide.

To do a quick color (or B&W) print job:

  1. Make sure your document is in PDF format
  2. Make sure you have money on your ID Card (to add or to check go here) — If you don’t have funds on your account (separate from the law school printing account) you can’t print anything.
  3. Using your Chrome browser go to https://copierprint.pepperdine.edu/
  4. You will need to login to this page with you Wavenet credentials
  5. Then click on the Web Print option on the left hand list of options then click on Submit a Job
  6. Follow the prompts (pick FindmeColor or FindmeBW)  Note that the charge for color is $0.35 per impression (but only for the pages with COLOR on them, pages with black and white are charged at $0.06)
  7. Select your number of copies (that’s your only option on this page – at this point this service does not support duplexing, or stapling)
  8. Upload your file — or drag it to the designated area on the screen.
  9. You will need to go to the copier to Release the job
  10. At the copier, login using your Wavenet credentials
  11. Select your print job from the list and release it

To Make a Copy

  1. Make sure you have money on your ID Card (to add or to check go here) — If you don’t have funds on your account (separate from the law school printing account) you can’t copy anything.
  2. At the copier, login using your Wavenet credentials
  3. Select Device Functions
  4. Select Copy
  5. Follow the normal prompts as you make your copies
  6. NOTE: This system absolutely will NOT allow you to go beyond your available funds in your account (see #1 above to check your balance).  For this reason, you may get logged off immediately after you do your first copy job. To learn how to ensure that you don’t get logged off do a “Job Build” to avoid needing to log in for each successive copy job you want to do.

You will note that this is a VERY DIFFERENT SYSTEM FROM the black and white printers.  

The black and white printers are maintained by the law school. The copiers are maintained by the University.  

You should note that this is the last year (2016-2017) that the black and white printers will be provided through the law school as we are phasing out this service in favor of the more economical and efficient copier printing.

For black and white printing (using your laptop or mobile device) to the Law Library HP student printers go HERE

ExamSoft SofTest – Registering with Pepperdine

ExamSoft LogoExamSoft Worldwide produces the SofTest examination software used by many law schools and state bar examiners. This software is a secure essay exam word processor. Pepperdine School of Law allows students to use this software to take their mid term and final law exams. If you plan to use your laptop computer to take your exams, SofTest is required. The majority of students currently take all or some of their exams via this program.

SofTest can be downloaded from the Internet (http://www.examsoft.com/pepperdinelaw) and installed on your laptop computer. In order to use the ExamSoft SofTest program at Pepperdine University School of Law, you MUST agree to the terms of this ExamSoft Student Agreement

IMPORTANT: RETURNING USERS – If you have not taken an exam during the current term, you may need to re-register your software for the current academic school year. To do this, simply follow the same steps for installing the program for the first time. Login to the Examsoft website listed above, download SofTest and install. When prompted, accept the new academic year’s student agreement and follow the remaining prompts to install the latest version of SofTest.

Before attempting any exam, we highly recommend downloading and running a ‘Mock Exam’ within SofTest. This will help ensure the software is functioning properly on your computer prior to exam day.

If you have recently upgraded your computer’s operating system, be sure to update SofTest to the most current version. You should always verify you are running the latest version of SofTest before every exam. Outdated software is the most common cause of technical issues on exams. For more information on the latest version of SofTest, as well as instructions on verifying your current version and updating to the newest version, please visit our SofTest Update and Finals postings.

NOTE: ExamSoft will not support Mac OS beta releases. For more information on ExamSoft’s Mac OS requirements, please visit the ExamSoft website.

New Copiers at Pepperdine!

MX-M354N-LPepperdine has just updated the copiers to the latest multi-function devices (MFDs) from Sharp (you can still call them copiers but they’re much more).

Students, Faculty, Staff, and Guests can print, scan, or copy on the new MFDs using a different procedure than was standard in the past.  Guests must buy a prepaid print card and then register online with our print/copy management system while students pay for their printing through their Student ID card.  See this page:http://community.pepperdine.edu/it/services/copyservices/printsetup.htm

Prior to this update, students, and guests could not print to the copiers in the University Library public areas.  This has now changed.  All students can print to all Sharp MFDs in public areas at any of the Pepperdine Southern California campuses.  This includes the newly installed color-enabled Sharp MFD in the Law Library public area.  Printing in color or black and white is possible and a document with a mix of color and black and white pages will only incur the higher cost for color on the pages where there is color.  This MFD is the only option for color printing for students in the Law Library.

The initiative that includes the installation of these new Sharp MFDs includes efforts university-wide to significantly reduce the number of individual and workgroup printers (which in aggregate are vastly less efficient and more expensive to maintain than the new copiers).

Over the course of the 2016-2017 school year, the School of Law will be gradually removing workgroup and personal printers as we move printing and copying onto the new multi-function copiers from Sharp.  After graduation in May 2017, the School of Law will retire its existing student printing system in favor of the new more efficient and feature-rich system provided by the University.

PLEASE NOTE that student printing as managed in the Law Library will remain the same for all law students during the 2016-2017 school year.  Note also that while other university students CANNOT print to the law student printers, they CAN print to the new Sharp MFD located in the public area of the Law Library (near the fax machine and the student printers).

 

 

Print Credit with Credit Card — System to be Replaced 5/19/2017

Please note: As of May 19, 2017, the School of Law will be adopting the university-wide copier/print system for students. All student printing will go through the Sharp copier/printing system.

The Sharp copier/printing system is currently accessible to all students at Pepperdine University and at all Pepperdine University campuses in Southern California (this includes the Calabasas location which may be a terrific place to study for the Bar Exam!).

See this page for more information on the new system — now in full operation at the Law Library and university-wide.

Add money to your Pepperdine ID Card … necessary to print to the new system.

Watch a short video on how to print on the new system (less than a minute long).

Note that the law library copier has been omitted from University IT’s published list of copiers available.  But it IS available!!!

———————————————————————————————————————————–

Law Students Only (JD, LLM, MDR)

(NOTE: The following information relates to the Pharos Uniprint system with release station and three HP LaserJet printers located in the main floor of the Pepperdine Law Library.  This system will be removed 5/19/2017 — PLEASE DO NOT ADD FUNDS UNLESS YOU PLAN TO USE THEM ALL BY 5/19/2017)

Using a credit card, Pepperdine law students can purchase additional print credit (for use only at the School of Law) online.

download (1) images

Simply follow the link provided to CASHnet, enter your information (including CWID) and you’ll be able to purchase print credit. Allowable non-refundable amounts range from $10 to $40. And this only applies to BLACK and WHITE printing.  For color printing refer to this page.

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.

NO REFUNDS.  However, note that the amount you pay for will remain in your account indefinitely (even after graduation).  Each term, funds are granted to your printing account (including summer term if you are enrolled for summer classes) equal to $35.00 in print value.  Once the $35 grant is exhausted, the system will switch over to your paid-in credit.

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. 

Windows 10 MAC Address Randomization! DON’T DO IT!

Some of you may have heard of this really cool option in Windows 10 to randomize your MAC address for security purposes.  However, the Pepperdine Wireless authenticates your machines based on your MAC address, so if you have it on or accidentally turned it on, you will not be able to connect reliably if at all to the Wireless at Pepperdine.

 

To turn Random Hadware Addresses off

1.)  Click on Network Settings

2.) Click on manage Wi-Fi settings

3.)If you don’t see Random hardware addresses, congratulations, your hardware doesn’t support Random hardware addresses. Otherwise ensure that “Use random hardware addresses” are turned off.

Wireless Network Access

LaptopPepperdine University has wireless networking capabilities in all non-residential buildings.  The “WiFi” network provides all the features and benefits of traditional LAN technologies without the limitations of wires or cables.  Students can conduct research, download research projects, and check e-mail within the accessible area.  For those students considering a new laptop purchase please be aware that the University recommends 802.11ac compatible Wifi connection.

You can easily access the WiFi network on your laptop, tablet, or wireless device by registering your device at https://wavesconnect.pepperdine.edu.  To register your device, select “Current Students, Faculty, and Staff” and then enter your wavenet ID and password credentials to access the WiFi network. 

Remember, when you register your device, your registration will last much longer than by registering as a guest user (up to a year if you are a frequent user on the network).

For more information on how to access the WiFi network by registering your device, please visit our Using your Phone/Tablet with WiFi article.

 

Security: Protect Your Laptop

  8. Do not open an email attachment unless you are expecting it or have checked with the sender.

Clickers for Students

Does every class use the Audience Response System from Turning Technologies (“Clickers”)?

No, but all 1L LRW classes use them so each member of the 1L class will be issued a clicker during Launch Week.  1L clickers must be returned to the Law Library at the end of the Spring Semester to avoid the $50 Replacement Fee.

Upper division classes and other 1L classes may take advantage of this technology. Professors will inform their classes if a clicker is required. If you have a class that does require a clicker, go to the Law Library Public Services Desk and check one out for the semester.   Please return the clicker at the end of the semester and avoid the $50 Replacement Fee.
