Scanning Technology in the Campus Library

Stand Alone Scanner - The Campus Library offers a stand-alone overhead scanning workstation on a height adjustable table that is available for use by all students.

Desktop Scanners - There are also 5 workstations in the Campus Library Information Commons which include legal-size flatbed scanners.  These workstations require proper logon credentials, as they also provide access to databases and online resources licensed by the University Libraries, Microsoft Office software, email and Internet access.  We also have an adaptive technology workstation equipped with a scanner, assistive hardware and additional software. (All scanners in the Campus Library are capable of scanning text materials using Optical Character Recognition to create files that can be used with text-to-speech software.)
