There are now scanners in the VCC, Folsom Library, and Architecture Library. Some of the scanners have the additional capability of scanning from film or slides. Below you will find the locations of the scanners followed by instructions on how to scan.
Flash drives can easily be plugged into the USB ports on the Dell monitors as one method of saving your scans.
Architecture Library -- Third Floor Greene Building
The Epson scanners in the Libraries are all USB-connected using extension cables, and can be easily unplugged and plugged into a laptop for scanning directly onto a user's hard drive (if the appropriate drivers are installed, etc.) Acrobat Professional is available for scanning into PDF files.
Using a Scanner
Place your document or photo on the document table, face down on the glass. Make sure the top of the document or photo is against the front edge of the scanner and centered on the arrow mark.
There are several ways to use the scanner. If you have never used a scanner, it is best to use the Scan Button or the Scanner Wizard. If you are familiar with scanning and are scanning photographs which you will want to edit, use ArcSoft PhotoImpression or Adobe Photoshop. If you are scanning to a PDF file, use Adobe Acrobat Professional.
First, log in to the computer attached to the scanner.
The Scan Button (Easiest)
Press the Scan button (lower right on scanner) and follow the directions.
The Scanner Wizard
Click on Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Camera and Scanner Wizard and follow the directions.
Click on Start --> All Programs --> ArcSoft PhotoImpression and follow the directions.
