Material to be typed, copied, and/or duplicated should be given to the department secretaries well in advance (and at least five working days) of the date on which the material is needed. Midterm and final examinations, and any other intricate or voluminous material, should be submitted two weeks before needed. Work submitted well before the time needed is welcomed and appreciated; such cooperation will provide the secretaries with ample time to turn out quality work.
Only examinations, handouts (please move these to the Resources section of Oncourse if possible), and syllabi (this should be on Oncourse) essential to a course should be duplicated at University expense and distributed free to students. Such syllabi or other materials should be of reasonable length. Copyright laws do not permit the duplication of sections of textbooks, workbooks, or periodicals for distribution to students.
The secretaries are to prepare institutional and professional work only and should not be asked to prepare personal material.
Office and classroom supplies for all faculty members are available from appropriate department secretaries.
When items needed are required to be purchased from an outside source, contact your chairperson/director for a purchase requisition form. This form must be completed and returned to the unit head for approval. If approved, it will then be typed by a secretary and forwarded to the Purchasing Office for processing. Individuals are not authorized to contact vendors about placing orders.
Faculty can submit material for duplication either to the department faculty secretaries or directly to the Mailing and Duplicating Office (KO 044). Purdue faculty must submit through the department.
Material must be submitted to the duplicating area at least 24 hours before it is needed (excluding weekends).
A completed duplication request form, available from department secretaries or the staff in the Mailing and Duplicating office, must accompany material to be duplicated. Duplication Services is open from 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday. If you need to pick up duplicated materials after 5 p.m., please ask the Duplicating staff to deliver the materials to your department’s work room. Copy machines are located in each school in their faculty lounges/workrooms. Since it is more expensive to use these, please check with your departments to see what volume should go to central duplicating. Please see your departmental secretary or Richard Sandy, KO 044, for a code access to the copier. Purdue faculty members need to contact Wanda Hunt, KC 250, to obtain an access code for the Purdue copier.
