Scanning Images

Several scanners are available in the Technology Learning and Media Center (Quentin Burdick Building (formerly the IACC) 150C) for use by students. A large format scanner is also on hand for tabloid-size scanning at high resolutions, with a scan area of 12x17 inches.

The scanners are most commonly used for:

  • Scanning pictures
  • Scanning text to Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files for reading
  • Scanning text to MS Word (.docx) files for editing

If you need help with scanning, please feel free to ask a TLMC Learning Assistant.
