Three scanners are located in the Reserve Room downstairs, and four scanners are located upstairs near the Law Reference section (south wing). Email the resulting files, save them to your USB drive, and/or print them.
Make your scanned PDFs full-text searchable (using OCR) at the Accessibility computer, located near the scanners upstairs. Open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat and select "Recognize Text » In this file."
Students may only use the scanners for limited periods of time when the Library is busy.
Scanning is free! Note that individuals should never scan or copy a complete book, since that would be a copyright infringement. More information on what you can photocopy and scan »
