Answer

Guest cards are available for purchase for printing and copying. The Libraries have guest computers, and the procedures for printing from these guest computers are different for those who are truly guests, and those who are KSU affiliates -- students, faculty and staff. See the procedures for printing below. 


Purchase a Guest Card

Guest cards may be purchased at any K-Cash machine on campus. The Sturgis Library's K-Cash machine is located in the Learning Commons and takes both cash and credit cards. In the Johnson Library, K-Cash Guest Cards may be purchased in the K-Cash machine located in the Hive Lab next to the Research Help room.

Guest cards cost $2.00 in exact change.  Do not use any other denomination of bill to purchase a guest card, as the machine will not issue change.  After purchasing the card, you must add a minimum of $1.00 onto your card (in addition to the $2.00 cost of the card).  Using a credit card, you must add a minimum of $10.00 onto your card (in addition to the $2.00 cost of the card).

To use the K-Cash machine,

1.   Go to the machine and select "Purchase a card."

2.   Select "Okay" to paying $2.00 for the card.

3.   If you would like a receipt of the transaction, please select "Yes."  Otherwise, select "No."

4.   Choose your payment method.  Remember, there is a $10.00 minimum if you use a credit card.  You can put as little as $1.00 on the card if you use cash.

5.   Insert money or select the amount you want charged to your credit card.

6.   Receive your guest card. You must then swipe the card in the machine to activate it.


Printing - Guests

1. Send your job to either the black and white (Guest-Print-BW on Print02) or color printer (Guest-Print-Color on Print02). 

  • The Guest Printer in Sturgis Library is located in between the cabinets on back wall near the stairwell of the ground floor of the library. Another guest printer is located on the first floor.

2. After sending the document to print, you will receive a Ricoh Printer Popup window on the computer screen. Enter K-Cash Guest Card identification number. This number is located on the reverse of the K-Cash Guest Card.

3. Go to the guest printer to release the print job. To release the job, you must swipe your K-Cash Guest Card on the side of the printer. A list of your pending documents will be shown, and you can select the job you wish to release.
