PawPrints Departmental Codes, or D-Codes, allow student employees to use PawPrints stations for work-related printing without affecting their balances. Use the D-Code Print Locator to find D-Code enabled printers across campus. All D-Codes remain active for one semester and must be reactivated each semester of a student's employment.
Departmental staff should request a D-Code for each student employee. The employee uses the D-Code to release work-related print jobs on D-Code enabled PawPrints stations. Student PawPrints balances will not be affected by work-related print jobs. A D-Code should only be used by the student employee to whom it is issued. Each D-Code will be disabled at the end of the semester, or upon termination of employment with the department.
Supervisors can (and should) periodically review the print history associated with a particular student employee. The print history will show the jobs released by D-Codes, which should only be work-related print jobs. Supervisors who become aware of personal print jobs that have been released by D-Codes should report the information to the PawPrints administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Baylor University Student Technology Services (a division of the Electronic Libaries) reserves the right to charge departments for excessive D-Code print jobs generated on general access printers.
2. Why should I care about D-Codes?
D-Codes will benefit your student staff or graduate assistants if they ever need to print work-related material on a public printer located in the library. They won't have to use their PawPrints allowance to print work-related material.
9. How long do D-Codes last?
Because student staff have the potential to change frequently D-Codes will be deactivated at the end of each semester. D-Codes for returning student employees can be reactivated by completing the form at the beginning of the semester and choosing the "Reactivate previous D-Code" option.
