Instructions for using EPSON scanning software.

Touch-Screen Scanners

Touch-screen scanners (Scannx Book ScanCenter) are available on all floors of Alden Library. These scanners are ideal for books since they are designed to hold a book open at the correct angle for scanning. However, they can also be used to scan loose documents. Scans may be saved to a USB flash drive or delivered to your email address.

Scan to Print

To send your scanned material directly to the Libraries’ printers, choose the “Print Black & White” or “Print Color” option from the Scannx home screen. More information about printing in the Libraries.

Microform Scanners

Microform reader/scanners are located on the 1st Floor of Alden Library. See our quick start guide for microform scanning.
