About Library Scanners

There are 2 scanners available to all visitors of the library which can be used to scan books which can be sent to email, USB, google drive, WEPA printers and directly to ones phone.

One scanner is located east of the circulation desk. Another scanner is located downstairs across from the computer lab.

Scanner Instructions

Scanning Instructions

  1. Press “begin” on the screen by either using the mouse or touching the screen. If you get a message saying the scanner is not connected, turn on the scanner by pressing the green power button on the bottom-right hand of the flatbed scanner.
  2. Choose how you would like to save/send the scanning job.
  • Email- Scans may be sent to an email address of your choice. Please Note: emails are limited to a 20mb file size. If you are doing a large scanning job or scanning in full color, you will want to use an USB or mobile device for storing the scans.
  • USB- Scans will be saved directly to the USB.
  • Mobile device- Once the scan is finished, a QR code will be displayed. Scan that QR code with your phone, and the file with the scans will download to your phone automatically.
  • WEPA Printer- For students only. Sign in with your net ID and password, once scans are finished, they will be available for you to print on a WEPA printer once you scan your cat card at the printing station.
  • Translation- You can make a scan which is then translated into a language of your choice. To do this, when at the ‘Please select the Scan Settings’ screen, select Word and then Add Translation. You can only do this when choosing the Word document format. When your scan is complete, you will have two files: one Word document of your original scan, and another Word document with the translated page. Please Note: We can not ensure the accuracy of scans translated into another language.
  1. Next, lift the scanning bed lid and place the book flat down on the scanning bed and press the “scan” button on the screen.
  2. The scanning software will automatically trim all the empty space around the book, removing the black borders. It will also auto rotate the scans, so you can place the book down to scan in almost any way you feel works best.
  3. There are a number of options you can select on the screen to alter the scans, such as: rotate it, split the scan in half horizontally or vertically, and crop a section of a scan (like a picture) which will create a page with just that cropped image or section as well as retrain the original scan.
  4. Once you are finished, and the scans look good, select the “finished” button at the bottom right of the screen.
