For the next two months we will be trialing scanners in the library (located in the copy room next to the Reference desk).
The systems include a “bookedge” flatbed scanner designed for scanning book pages without the need to push down on the book spine; and a document-feed scanner for fast multiple-sheet scans. The latter machine can scan both sides of a page at once, and can handle 50 sheets at a time.
A simple touch-screen menu guides you through the scan process, and lets you output in pdf, word, tiff, etc., and even produces searchable pdfs and editable word docs.
Scans can be downloaded to a flash drive or sent to an email address. No printing: so with no paper or toner costs, we plan to provide scanning for free.
Please come try them out and let us know what you think!
