Scanning

There are 39 scanners in the Walker Library.  

EIC Scanner

     

One scanner is located on the first floor in the Research Commons. The Research Commons is located on the right, just as you enter the Library. As you enter this area, the scanner will be to the right of the help desk at the computer station named "Wouk."


2nd Floor Scanners

     

The other 38 scanners are located on the second floor in the Digital Media Studio. Thirteen of the scanners are attached to the specialized DMS workstations that are intended primarily for digital projects. The remainder of the scanners are at the general workstations to the south of the service desk. When not needed for scanning, these computers may be used for general purposes.  

If you have any questions, please check with the student worker at the Studio service desk.
