The Scholars’ Corner computer is configured for the use of visitors. The Leatherby Libraries welcomes visitors from around the world on a regular basis, and this computer provides temporary access to library resources and services for up to 30 minutes. Printing is not available. Users must comply with the University’s Computer and Network Acceptable Use Policy
While other microfilm machines in the Leatherby Libraries only allow for reading and printing, the digital microform scanner allows you to create digital files from microfilm, microfiche, opaque cards, photographs, transparencies, and more! You can save your digitization to a flash drive, burn them to a CD, email them to yourself, or print them. The scanner is easy to use and allows you to have control over brightness, contrast, sharpness, inverted images and more. In addition, the library has developed illustrated user-friendly guides for differing levels of scanning: easy (for quick viewing and printing), intermediate (for medium quality image capture), and advanced (for very high resolution, high quality images). These guides can be found in printed form immediately next to the scanner itself. This station is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Simply log in to the PC with your Chapman credentials.
This PC’s scanner will scan documents up to 8 ½ by 14 inches in size (larger than most common scanners). You may save your work onto a CD, USB flash drive or email the files to yourself.
This unit is meant for scanning batches of print photographs. It will provide options for rotation, red-eye reduction, re-touching, and resolution. The fronts and backs of the print photo may be scanned at the same time. There is a large-format companion scanner, which may be used for over-sized or delicate photographs.
