Best of all, it’s free!

The scanner has an easy-to-use, intuitive touchscreen, and complete directions can be found on the machine. For more information or assistance, ask a Circulation Desk attendant.

What you need to know about the overhead scanner

  • Touch screen to activate.
  • Place book/page face-up in the middle of the scanner bed.
  • Select settings (Color/Gray Scale/Black and White; Split Pages in Two; Image Type)
  • Press the green Scan button or use foot pedal.
  • Delete images and adjust settings as needed.
  • Save file to USB drive (port located on front of scanner bed) or email.
  • Press the yellow End Session button when you are finished or ready to start a new PDF or JPEG file.

Just in time to check out those old exams or make copies of your out-lines, the library is here to help! The library‘s two public copiers have been replaced by one newer model.

These new options are designed to be user-friendly and easy to use. Directions are located near each machine. If you need assistance, don‘t hesitate to ask the Circulation Desk attendant for help.

Try them out and give your feedback (e.g., feel free to suggest improvements to the printed instructions) to the Circulation Desk.

What you need to know about the new copier

Good news for those who have been frustrated by the copy cards needed to use the public photocopiers throughout the library!

  • The old machines are being replaced by a Xerox machine that will take Domer Dollars (which can be added to your ID at food.nd.edu).
  • The price of copies will remain 10¢ per page.
  • The machines will also scan to email for free; documents can then be printed using your print quota.
  • The new copier is located on the second floor, adjacent to the Main Read-ing Room.
  • Visitors can still obtain a copy card at the Circulation Desk.
