Scanning & More

Several units in the Herman B Wells Library (Scholars' Commons Digitization Lab, and Help Desks in East Tower 2nd Floor and West Tower 4th Floor) and all branch libraries have flatbed scanners that are available to all patrons. Scanning standard 8 1/2" x 11" pages is free for IU students, faculty, staff. 

Scanned documents can be loaded onto a thumb/flash drive or sent to an e-mail, Canvas or Box account.

Printing of scanned results uses standard IU printing procedures and allocations.

Government Information, Maps and Microform Services (East Tower, 2nd floor) has microform machines that can scan images from microfilm, microfiche, and microopaques. These scans can be printed, saved to a flash drive, and/or emailed in PDF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG and BMP formats.

Some campus libraries have freestanding photocopiers or scanner/printers. All require a valid current Crimson Card for use.

Visitors may obtain a Library Guest Account and scan materials rather than photocopying them. Saving scanned images to a flash drive, depositing them in an online storage service such as Box, or sending them via email can be done at no charge. To print copies, visitors must purchase a print card. For more information, see Library Guest Account.
