There's a self-service scanner at Lawson McGhee Library optimized for scanning library reference materials, but you can also scan personal documents and photographs. Output your scans to a USB drive, Google Drive, email address (not for personally identifying documents), or to a mobile device via QR code.
File types include:
- quick PDF or searchable PDF
- RTF (editable text)
- MP3 – scan a text document and output to MP3 to listen to the text read aloud using synthesized text-to-speech
There's better scanning for documents, photos and other media in the Memory Lab. Reservations are required.
In branch libraries with a photocopier, the scan function can be used to store scans to a USB drive. No other output options are provided.
Scanning is free.
