Two self-serve scanners with friendly help screens are located in the Parks Library on Floor 1, in the southwest corner of the Learning Connections Center. These "face-up" book scanners are available during all open hours, and are free of charge. Users can choose to scan in full color, grayscale, or black and white. Output formats include JPEG, TIFF, and PDF. Scanning area is 17" by 24". Scanned files can be emailed or copied to a flash drive.
Problems with these scanners can be reported at any library public service desk and will be referred to the library's Learning Connections Center.
These scanners are not networked to a printer. Depending on printing requirements (size, color, etc.), files saved to your flash drive must be printed elsewhere, e.g., on networked laser printers elsewhere in the Library, or in the Library Copy Center. Networked printing, including color printing, is also available via the ISU Printing Services' NowPrint system.
Scanning from microfilm:
The Media Center (room 002, Parks Library) is equipped with five self-serve digital scanners, allowing users to scan images from microfilm or microfiche at resolutions of 200 to 800 dpi. The scanning itself is free of charge. Users can email scanned images or copy them to their own flash drives or CDs, also free of charge. Printing services, along with staff-mediated scanning services, are available for a fee.
Note these additional scanning services available on campus:
The open computer lab in 139 Durham Center provides self-serve scanners for use by ISU students, faculty and staff.
Scanning, along with access to hardware and software for Web and multimedia development, is also available to faculty, staff, and teaching assistants in the CELT eLab maintained by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (1151 Communications Building).
The College of Design's Design Document Center has a 40"-wide CONTEX scanner for student use. Scans can be up to 1/2" thick. Scans are saved to a lab machine with a CD burner and network access for storage.
