An allocation from the Student Library Advisory Board has provided a new scanner with advanced capabilities for public use in Davis Library.
The Knowledge Imaging Center (KIC) walk-up scanner is specially designed for library use. The full-color scanner accepts pages up to 17 X 24″. Because the scanner accepts documents face-up, it is faster to use than other scanners, and it protects books from damage.
The KIC is located on the first floor of the library in the Nelson Ferebee Taylor Reading Room, near the stairs. It is beneath the sign that says Public Scanners.
Scanned documents must be saved to a USB drive, which can be brought from home or borrowed at the Research and Instructional Services desk. No appointment is needed to use the KIC.
The scanner purchase was made possible by the Student Endowed Library Fund, which is allocated each year by decision of the Student Library Advisory Board. The Board is composed of current undergraduate and graduate students who provide a direct student perspective to the Library’s administration.
