Our book scanners allow patrons to scan documents to PDF or JPEG formats, to e-mail or save to a flash drive.


One of our microform machines allows for free printing direct from the film. Another can scan the film to a PDF, which you may email to yourself to print. Students can print this PDF using their print quota. Community members will need to purchase a print top-up card if they wish to print the item in the Library.
