Hamersly’s spring term newsletter is here, full of helpful information and reminders about your WOU library. Pick up a print copy in the library or read it online here.
This term’s issue includes a fond farewell to retiring Dean of the Library, Allen McKiel, information about how to personalize library databases, news about how WOU faculty are working to save students money on textbooks, and much more! Read the newsletter here.
How much does printing cost? A single page (one side) of a black & white printout costs 1 print credit. A single color page (one side) printout costs 5 print credits. Students receive 225 print credits per term.
How do I know how many print credits I have? Log in to the WOU Portal and your balance will be displayed on your homepage.
How do I buy more print credits? Purchase additional credits through WolfWeb under the Student Menu. They start at 50 credits for $2.50 and go up from there. When you buy additional credits they are immediately available for use.
What if I don’t use all of my print credits? Whatever credits you don’t use roll over to the next term. However, accounts are zeroed out before each Fall term begins.
Check out our Textbooks Guide for options to buy, rent, and borrow textbooks for your classes this term.
