Check Out our New Scanner!

The new scanner at the Dewey Library is located on the first floor along the back wall by the current periodicals. This scanner is specifically designed for scanning books and won’t damage the spine or create any shadows near the center of the page. It allows scans of 11”x17” and has a maximum resolution of 600 dpi, or dots per inch. This means that materials can be scanned at a high resolution, making the picture very clear. Automatic color matching ensures the scanned materials are accurate depictions of the original.

This is a touch screen scanner that doesn’t require a computer or special software. You don’t need to log in with an ID or run a specific program. Simply select how you want to scan and start scanning! It’s possible to scan directly to a USB, printer, or send to your email.

The scanner at the Dewey Library is available when the Dewey Library is open. Please view our hours page and plan accordingly. There’s no need to sign up, simply drop by the library! If you have any questions about our new scanner, please call the reference desk at 442-3691, email us, or visit the desk in person.
