New! BookScan Stations

January 26th, 2012

During the spring semester, the campus library system is piloting a new, self-service book scanning system. Three, public stations have been distributed to the libraries, one each to College, Memorial and Steenbock Libraries. Steenbock’s book-scanning station is located on its second floor (entrance level) and to the immediate right as one enters the building.

By means of an easy, step-by-step, touch-screen, one can scan the content from books (or other materials) to a variety of formats (PDF, searchable PDF, jpeg, text and Word) then save to flash drive or Google Docs, email, or print. The equipment includes flatbed and sheet-fed scanners capable of rendering images in color, grayscale and black/white. The printing feature (now only black/white) will communicate with the current “Go Print” release stations.

Come, give it a try and tell us what you think! Need assistance? Speak with staff at our service desks.
