Scanning

Penn students, faculty and staff may use one of the 7 scanner stations available in the Weigle Information Commons and 1 scanner available in the Education Commons. There are two flat-bed scanners and one sheet-fed scanner located near the WIC printer stations. The Vitale Digital Media Lab has 4 scanners: slide, film, document feeder, and large-format capability. The Education Commons has a flat-bed and sheet-fed scanner near the EC printers.

When scanning library materials and other works that are not your own, please follow copyright laws and regulations. For a summary of issues and practices, see Stanford University's Copyright and Fair Use Overview.


Scanners in WIC and EC

The Canon and HP scanners are connected to workstations loaded with Adobe Acrobat for creating PDF files and Adobe Photoshop CS4 for creating image files. The HP flatbed scanner also has ReadIRIS Pro, an OCR program that makes scanned text editable. The BookScan Station includes a sheet feeder and a large-format scanner, both connected to an easy-to-use touchscreen monitor which allows you to email scanned files, upload them to your Google Docs account, or save them to a USB drive. Please note, you must have a PennKey login to use the equipment.
