ATWP 135 Library Guide

Guide to using UVic Libraries for ENGL135 students - or any student new to UVic!


You can print from any computer in the library. You can also use wireless printing to print from your own laptop.

Printing Cost

  • Black and White - 12 cents per page.
  • Colour - 40 cents per page.

Prints are paid for through your OneCard Flex Account which is a Netlink-ID based printing system.


How do I print?


1) Send the print job from your computer:

  • Click on the print icon for your software or choose Print from the file menu and your document will be sent to the print stations with your Netlink ID as the name for the print job.
  • You can select whether to print to the black and white or the colour printer (black and white is the default).
  • All printers have the duplex option (double-sided) as the default setting. You may change the duplex setting to single-sided as required.

2) Release the print job at a print release station:

  • Prints are paid for through your OneCard Flex Account. 
  • At the print release station, logon to your acount with your Netlink ID and password and release the your print job.

Note that if you send a black and white print job to the colour printer, it will still cost 40 cents per side.


  • Print jobs are only available for printing at the print station for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, they are automatically deleted from the print queue and cannot be retrieved.
