Using the Scanner on Campus

Support Portal  »  Information Technology Services  »  Viewing Article

The ITS computer labs in 206 MSB, 205 FH, Riverfront, and 3174 WSW have scanners. There are a limited number of scanners in each lab so please use these computers for scanning purposes only. Please do not write emails, work on Microsoft Office documents, or surf the web on these computers. If you have to save the document in order to email or upload it then save it to your H: drive, flash drive, or external hard drive so you can work on it at a different computer.

The ITS computer labs in 206 MSB, 205 FH, Riverfront, and 3174 WSW are also equipped with PaperCut printers that also support scanning functions. For more information on how to scan using a PaperCut printer, Reference How to Use the PaperCut Printers
