Computer workstations are available in a variety of locations in the Parks Library and branch facilities, including labs, book stacks, and study areas.
Most of our workstations are unrestricted and do not require a specialized login.
Scanning books, journal articles, or other papers:
Self-serve scanners with friendly help screens are located in the Parks Library on Floor 1 (in the southwest corner of the Learning Connections Center) and in the Veterinary Medicine Library. These "face-up" book scanners are available during all open hours, and are free of charge. Users can choose to scan in full color, grayscale, or black and white. Output formats include JPEG, TIFF, and PDF. Scanning area is 17" by 24". Scanned files can be emailed or copied to a flash drive.
Scanning from microfilm:
The Media Center (room 002, Parks Library) is equipped with five self-serve digital scanners, allowing users to scan images from microfilm or microfiche at resolutions of 200 to 800 dpi. The scanning itself is free of charge. Users can email scanned images or copy them to their own flash drives or CDs, also free of charge.
