Scanning Options

There are three different types of scanners that are available for use in the library:

 Recommended uses for each scanner:

     Copier: single or multiple page documents (Thompson and The Pas campus)

    Computer Scanner: photos, film positives/negatives, short high-quality documents (The Pas campus only)

    Book Scanner: books (The Pas campus only)

               Instructions on using each scanner can be found below.

Thompson - Using the Copier for Scanning

** Simply hit the Copy or Send button once desired job is placed face down in the scanner bed, aligned within the margins manufactured on the unit itself. The Canon will provide double-sided printing, letter and document size. This unit prints black & white only.

 ** If pressing Send, this will bring up a list of library staff email addresses. Patrons may scan and send their print job to us, so that we may print directly from our library email service.

     Additionally, we may print from USB via our workstation PCs.

The Pas - Using the Book Scanner

To scan a book using the Book2Net Kiosk scanner:

  2)      Insert a USB memory stick into one of the two USB slots found on the right of the touch screen.

  3)      Lift the protective clear cover and position the book in the centre of the book cradle.
            •  In order to support the spine of the book correctly, adjust the centre supports by turning the grey knobs at the front of the
               book cradle left or right.

  4)      To scan/capture an image, please press one of the green bars on the book cradle or the foot pedal (sitting on the cabinet
            to the right of the machine).

               you must agree to the copyright regulations relating to the use of Digital Scanners, stating that you are legally
               responsible for any copies made.
