Use of Scanners 

As a courtesy, we request that patrons limit scanning time to 10 minutes on the walk-up Bookeye Scanner, if other patrons are waiting to use the scanner. For the flat-bed scanners, we ask that you limit your time on the workstation to 30 minutes.

Although these workstations are available for general computing, priority use of them shall be given to those needing to scan materials for academic needs. Those using the workstations for other purposes may be asked to yield the computer to those needing to scan. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. If you need assistance or have questions about this policy, please contact staff at the nearest service desk. See our policy.

 


Walk-up Bookeye Scanner

State-of-the-art, fast document scanning kiosks, known as Bookeye Scanners, are located in the reference areas of the Bartle, Science, and UDC Libraries. The environmentally friendly Bookeye scanner features intuitive touch screen controls for easy use. Documents can be saved to a USB flash drive in a multiple of formats, including searchable PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and MP3 audio files or sent to your email account.
The walk-up scanner uses a V-cradle scanning bed so documents remain completely untouched by the scanner's image capturing lens. The V-cradle helps to preserve the book's binding and is excellent for older fragile books. The scanner is capable of scans up to 17 X 24 inches or as small as a postage stamp. The scanner scans in vibrant color or black & white. The scanner kiosk is wheelchair accessible and is a UDSA compliant digitization system.

If you need assistance with the Bookeye scanner, please visit a library service desk.
