Not too long ago, the Law Library updated to some pretty great scanners. Our previous scanners were used to scan the 1997 In Brief issue
. Compare that to our new scanners, which scanned this 2017 In Brief issue
. There are 2 scanners for use in the computer lab. There is a document/loose leaf scanner and a book scanner.
The loose leaf scanner can duplex scan at speeds of 120 images per minute at 300 dpi in Color, Grayscale, and Monochrome. This 80-sheets Automatic Document Feeder is capable of handling sticky notes, receipts, labels, and hard and embossed credit and ID cards up to 1.4mm thick
The book scanner protects the spine of the book from damage to extend its life. The book page lies flat on the glass, and the full image of the page is captured without distortion. The Book ScanCenter automatically crops, straightens and orients each page!
You can scan directly to your Google Drive, USB or even your Smart Phone. You can scan to Word, PDF or Picture formats! There's so much that can be done with the scanners so swing on by the computer lab in the library (room 311) and check them out!
In addition to using the scanner for personal documents, such as class notes, students who are on one of the journals also can scan original sources so that they "look just like the books." Many of the library's research databases and e-books, however, allow users to access needed content in PDF directly, without needing to use a scanner. HeinOnline, for example, offers thousands, if not millions, of pages of documents in PDF format, such as U.S. regulations, Supreme Court cases, and law journal articles -- even older ones! Ask a reference librarian if you need help determining if a needed document is available in PDF format.
