Overhead Book Scanners

There are two free overhead book scanners located on the third floor of Lauinger Library, next to the water bottle filling station.

Users with a Georgetown NetID will be able to quickly scan pages from books (two pages at once!) or documents up to 17 x 24 inches. Scans can be saved to a USB drive or sent to any email address. A foot pedal has been installed to assist with quick book scanning, allowing users to scan 18 pages in under a minute!

Scanner Equipped Computer Stations

Computers located in the Gelardin Center on the first floor of Lauinger Library have flatbed scanners connected: the seven Windows 10 MultiMedia stations located at the front of the Gelardin Open Computing area.

Adobe Acrobat Professional and Nuance OmniPage (an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software package which converts an image of text to text-editable documents) is installed on these scanner-equipped computers to allow users to edit scanned documents before saving to external media (such as a USB drive) or uploading to the Internet.

A NetID is required to access all Gelardin Center computers, including these scanner-equipped workstations.

Multifunction Printers and Scanners

Most public printers are scanning-capable. Scanning is available at no charge, but is only accessible to patrons with GOCards or Guest Print Cards. For more information and to view a list of scanner locations, visit the UIS printing website.
