Mann Library has several desktop scanners available for free public use in the Stone Computing Center (map it) and computer classrooms (map it). All scanners are available on a first come first serve basis. Scanner users have first priority over e-mail/web surfers on computers that are connected to scanners. The 1st floor has two Ricoh multi-function scanner photocopiers that can be used for traditional photocopying as well as scanning and saving to USB drive or sending to an email address.
Epson Perfection 1640SU Scanner
This scanner is attached to the Assistive Technology Station (map it). Users of the Assistive Technology facilities have priority for this scanner. The Epson Perfection 1640 SU offers both flatbed and automatic document feeder scanning. (Note: if you need faster automatic document feeder scanning and/or have a lot of pages to scan, try our Network Scanner instead).
To scan a document, follow one of the following instructions and ask the operator if you are unsure of anything.

Epson1660 Photo Scanner
There are two Epson 1660 photo scanners attached to two iMacs in the Stone Computing Center (map it). Please note: we do not have the slide/negative adapters for these scanners so it is not possible to scan slides/negatives on these particular machines.

Scanning is available from Windows desktop computers in the Basement Computer Labs B30A and B30B (map it) via a Network Scanner, located next to the Net-Print printers in the basement. Documents up to 11" x 17" can be scanned, and it also features an automatic document feeder for rapid scanning of multiple documents.
Using this scanner is somewhat different than standard desktop scanners - it sends scanned documents to the desktop of the computer that you specify. All the public computers at Mann are numbered, so it's a simple matter of sending your scans to the right computer. You may want to consult our help brochure to get you started:
