Photocopies / Scan to paper



The library has two types of scanners:

1. Book ScanCenter in the Art Library, 2nd floor of Olin

This scanner is a simple touch-screen device that allows you to scan to:

  • USB flash drive
  • Dropbox
  • your smartphone or tablet (you will need a QR barcode scanner app installed to download the file)
  • email (you can only send to addresses, limit of 25 MB file)

You can scan into a variety of filetypes -- PDF, Word, TIFF, JPG, PNG.

2. The public Ricoh printers (we have 6 of these scattered throughout the library)

These devices can scan to email only.  You can only send to addresses, limit of 25 MB file. Instructions: How to scan on a public printer/copier/scanner

Photocopies/Scan to paper

To make a photocopy (in other words, scan to paper) you can use any of the library or lab public printers.  You are charged the same price per page as for printing.  Instructions: How to photocopy (Color) and How to photocopy (Black and White)
