FAQ: Does the Law Library Have a Scanner?

The law library has four publicly accessible print scanners available for use at no charge.

There is one copier/scanner unit located on the 5th floor in the copy center.  There are also two book scanners on the 5th floor in the copy center and one on the third floor near the journals.

The book scanners are especially recommended for bound materials.  The flatbed scanner has a beveled edge which allows the user to scan materials with out breaking the bindings.  The book scanners offer multiple scan settings, such as choice of resolution and color scans.  See the instructions for using the book scanner.

The copier/scanner unit is best for quick scanning of unbound materials.  They offer limited settings and scan more quickly than the book scanner.

On the copier/scanner unit, users select the scanner function and enter an email address.  When your scan is complete, the machine automatically sends a PDF file to you. With the book scanner, users create a PDF file which they can then email or copy onto a thumb drive.

The Law School Copy Shop also offers scanning services for 5 cents per page.  They can scan documents into either a .pdf file (not editable) or a .tif file (editable). Scanned pages may delivered as an email attachment, on a floppy disk, or burned to a CD-Rom.

The law library also has two microfiche/microfilm scanners available in the microforms area on the second floor.  There is no cost to scan materials, but printing costs 7 cents per page.
