New for September 2013 is a free overhead book scanner located on the third floor of Lauinger Library, across from the Reference Desk.
Users with a Georgetown NetID will be able to quickly scan pages from books or documents up to 17 x 24 inches. Scans can be saved to a USB drive, as an attachment via email, or uploaded to Google Drive. A foot pedal has been installed to assist with quick book scanning, allowing users to scan 18 pages in under a minute. The cradle your document or book sits on while being scanned can be set to lay flat for loose documents or angled in a V to hold a bound book, which eliminates glare and distortion in scans. Scans are set by default to "Auto Split" which intelligently splits book pages to one physical page per PDF page when scanning books.
