Technology in the Library: How to Copy

Copying Overview


To Copy, you may either use the flatbed scanner or the paper feed tray at the top of the machine.

The feed tray works best with single or multi-page documents (please remove staples or paper clips).

The flatbed scanner works best to scan pages from a book or journal, or smaller items such as a passport or license.
