How to place an Order in RSF

When you login to your account in RSF you will be at the home screen.  To place an order you have two options,  ‘Copying for Classroom’ or ‘Copying for Administrative Purposes’.  The ‘Copying for Classroom’ is your general every-day type of classroom handout, quizzes, exams, etc.

The ‘Copying for Administrative Purposes’ would be for distribution to the professors & faculty staff.  We offer memo paper and letterhead as options for this type of printing.  The different paper choices are shown in the finishing screen.

 

How to place an Order in RSF

There are three options under ‘Copying for Class’.  Select which link best suits the type of printing that you wish to do.  Once you select your printing you will be sent to the non copyright submission screen to ADD your files.  When you ADD files, you will have two options, one is to directly upload your PDF file and the other option is to select ’Offline” materials, which is for hard copies that you will bring to the print centre.  Chose ’type’ filename pages—(if originals are double-sided you must count each side as one page) count each side of the sheet with writing as 1 page, then ’ADD’ and proceed as normal.

To submit the material to be printed with the Permission Form please refer to the previous chapter on how to create a print job in the RSF system.  These steps are the same.  When you checkout through the Copyright Submission process there are some slight differences in the ’Shopping Cart’ screen that you will notice.

 

**Your job really does not cost $9,000.00 as this is simply to draw attention to copyright permission being requested so that the print center does not proceed until the permission is granted.**

 

**Please proceed to the “Continue Shopping” to add your job for approval.**
