Describes the basics of using the ST ViewScan II microform scanner located on the 4th floor, behind the elevators.

Printing Documents

Once you have scanned a document, it can be emailed, printed, or saved to USB, Google Drive, or Dropbox. You may also burn images to a CD.

While the default format for saving is multipage PDF, you will find that you may also save your files as single page PDFs, searchable PDFs, or as .BMP, .JPEG, .PNG, or .TIF files. Use the Format menu to explore these options.

WARNING:

  • SAVE AS YOU GO!
  • Your image files will be cleared out whenever a session ends (whether by choice or malfunction).
  • If you start in one mode and wish to move to another, save your files before exiting – they will not be saved across modes.
  • If the local memory (RAM) becomes full, the computer may freeze and you may not be able to save.
