  • Please be advised that printing problems can be experienced when sending multiple large print jobs (e.g. journal / book pdfs; SPSS output); double-sided; and / or duplex printing, etc.
  • Please only print one file at a time. The printer memory is limited therefore sending multiple jobs to the printer likely cause it to malfuncation and/or print very slowly.

Copyright Rules and Regulations 

  • The photocopying and/or printing of copyrighted work such as a test, book, journal, or any substantial part of the work, without the permission of the copyright owner constitutes infringement of copyright.
  • Details regarding copyright and the University are available in all libraries, photocopier locations and under the heading Copyright and You
  • The test publishers hold the copyrightto commercial tests, therefore they set policies that determine whether a user is qualified to use, administer, and interpret the test. This is based on the user’s level of training and education.
  • The PRC adheres to the publishers’ guidelines and policies on test use.
  • Please note that the copying of manuals, protocols, and other parts of commercial tests is strictly forbidden at the Resource Centre.

The Guidelines for Laptops and iPads Usage 

The Resource Centre currently has 2 laptops (laptop 2 and laptop 3 respectively) available for short term loan. The laptops are only available for use for current graduate students, departmental faculty members, and the YUPC.

  • The laptops are heavily circulated therefore it is recommended that you book a reservation in advance. Please click here. Users can reserve for specific dates and times in advance.
  • If the user is borrowing a laptop for their first time the users will be asked to complete a Resource Centre Laptop/iPad Loan Agreement

Psychological testing and scoring software is installed on the laptop along with the standard set of computer applications (e.g MS Office, SPSS, etc.).

Please note: Many testing & scoring software programs require passwords in order to access the service.

This information can be found in the Laptop User Document which is located in the bag of each laptop

Individual publishers and vendors determine the format (e.g. MSWord, PDF, etc.) of the reports and output.  As the laptop is not attached to a specific printer, it is advised that users familiarize themselves with the features of the application(s) you will be using.

In order to save your work a user must have an external memory drive / USB key available.  If unavailable, users can also e-mail the files to themselves.

The laptops are deep frozen so there memory is wiped nightly.
Therefore no information is stored or saved on the laptops even if it was saved directly to the laptop previously.

In addition to the deep freeze, all reports, files and client identifiers are removed from the laptop at the end of every shift in order to ensure client confidentiality.

Guidelines for the iPad

  • Two iPads are available for loan in order to use in specific graduate assessment courses under the supervision of the course directors.
  • Prior to borrowing for the first time, users will be asked to complete a Resource Centre Laptop/iPad Loan Agreement
