Microform Scanner

Walter Library has a couple microform readers and one scanner next to the microform collection in room 206. With the scanner, you can scan one page at a time and combine the scans into one PDF.

Tips:

  • Plan enough time. Scanning microforms can be a time-consuming process.
  • Keep your PDFs small. If you plan to email the PDF, only send 3-5 pages at a time. If you plan to save the PDF to a flash drive, only save 15 pages at a time. The program gets a little bogged down beyond those limits.
  • Before you start scanning, check to be sure that the microform is not already online.
  • You will find a complete user guide next to the scanner.
