Location of Scanners

The library has two types of scanners: flatbed and book-eye. The book-eye scanners are overhead, allowing the user to easily flip pages. These scanners create PDFs which can be emailed or saved to a flash drive (recommended), and are not connected to computers. The rest of the scanners are standard flatbeds, and are connected to student computers. There is no charge for scanning at this time.
