Public Printing (Guests) - Self Registration for PaperCut
Guests can register online in order to create a PaperCut account. Once your account is created, you will have the ability to print within the Parkland Library. Former Parkland students will be able to print using their ParklandOne credentials for approximately one year after the last day they attended classes. After that, former students will need to create a PaperCut guest account instead.

Once your account is created, you need to add value before you can send and release your print jobs. Add Value Stations are available in the library and they accept cash, coins, and cards.

The first step in the Guest Registration process is to visit the Parkland PaperCut website:https://papercut.parkland.edu:9192/user and click the Register as a New User link.
Self Registration Form
The Register New User Account form opens. All fields are required.
A valid email address is necessary to not only verify your new account, but communicate with you about any jobs you have submitted. Enter your full name, email address, and a username that you will remember. The system will automatically insert "guest-" as a prefix onto your username to prevent duplication with existing non-guest PaperCut accounts. In the example below, testuser was entered in the username field and thus the complete username becomes guest-testuser. Next, create a secure password, enter it a second time to verify it, and don't share it with anyone.
When the form is complete, Click the Register button.
This screen that appears will indicate that you have successfully created your account. You'll receive an email asking you to verify your account. Those instructions are at the end of this document.
Clicking Login opens the PaperCut Log in page with your username filled in.
Enter your password and Click Log in.
After logging in, your PaperCut account summary page will appear. It details information about your account. You can add credit to your account by using the add credit stations in the Library. Log Out when you're finished.
This completes your Guest Account Registration. Now that you have your guest account registered, you can use it at the sign-in prompt when printing from the public workstations in the Learning Commons and to log into the PaperCut release station when retrieving your print job/s.
