Yes, our library copy machines have scan-to-USB capabilties! Scanning is free. (Copying is $0.10 per page.)

Scanned documents are saved to a USB drive as PDF files.

The Circulation desk offers free temporary USB drives to current students. Check out a USB drive with your student ID.

How to Scan Documents to Your USB Drive on a Sawyer Copy Machine: 

1. Insert USB drive into right side of machine.

2. Place loose documents text-upwards in Document Feeder (top of machine).

3. Press copier touch-screen button: Scan. Document will scan and then save to inserted USB drive.

7. WAIT to remove USB until document saving is complete.

For more assistance with scanning, visit the Reference or Circulation desks.
