One of our librarians using the book2net scanner in the Science and Business Reading Room

We welcomed this new addition to the Science and Business Reading Room last week. Researchers can now digitally scan material from our general collections and save the file to their USB flash drive (aka jump drive, thumb drive, and memory stick).

 Our Newspaper and Current Periodical Reading Room also has a book2net scanner. You can learn more about this scanner from the LC Blog post:

  1. Ristech and book2net have recently installed a smaller (and more affordable) versionof the Kiosk at many academic libraries in North America. The new equipment, “the Spirit by book2net” has many of the same features however it is designed for smaller libraries for Public Walk Up use.
