CSUN students can now scan documents at the Oviatt Library. Three user friendly, self-serve scanning stations allow students to scan items to: USB, email, Box and phone or tablet. The stations are conveniently located in the:
- Learning Commons Technology (Main floor);
- Music & Media (2nd floor East); and
- Reserves, Periodicals & Microform (RPM – 4th floor East).
The ability to scan documents is a service students had been requesting at the Library. Since self-service scanners with multiple capabilities can be costly, members of the Library Technology Committee performed a needs assessment, and surveyed the products of multiple vendors. Last semester, three scanners were purchased with funding from the Campus Quality Fee (CQF).
The scanners support convenience and enhance student experience at the Library as they decrease paper waste, and assist the accessibility of materials by students with visual impairments. There is no charge for students to scan materials. The Oviatt Library appreciates the funding made possible through the CQF and is excited to offer scanning to CSUN students.
