Touch-Screen Scanners

There are also easy-to-use touch-screen scanners on all floors of Alden. These scanners are located near the service desk area.
You can use them for scanning files to Word documents, PDFs, or JPEG files.
You can scan your documents & email to yourself, scan to your smartphone or download them to a USB flash drive using the port attached to the scan station.



Scan to Print

Scan to print service replaces the former photocopying service. From any of the Libraries’ touch-screen scanners, choose the “Print Black & White” or “Print Color” option from the home screen. To print your scanned document, follow the instructions for Printing for Students or Printing for Faculty, Staff, Visiting Scholars and Community Members.


Microform Scanners


All  microforms require a microform reader/scanner for viewing, printing or scanning.

Currently we have 3 reader/scanners which make it possible to view and scan microform documents.  The scanned documents can be printed, saved to a storage device or e-mailed.

There are 3 reader/scanners that print copies using a Library Copy Card and one scanner that permits viewing only.
