Document Scanner

Share & Bookmark, Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option


The scanner is not configured to send print jobs directly to the Library’s printer.  You can go to other computers to access your completed scans on Email, USB, cloud storage services, or FamilySearch, and then use the Library’s regular printing methods from there. The document scanner service is free. You can scan up to 10 pages at a time.

Basic Operations

  1. Confirm that the scanner is turned on.  The scanner’s power button is on its top right.  The power button glows with a blue light when the power is on.
  2. Open the scanner’s lid and place the original face down on the glass.
  3. On the touch screen, touch the large button labeled “Touch Screen to Begin.”
  4. The next screen shows a menu with the heading “Select One.”  Touch the button for the desired destination for the scan: Smartphone, email, Google Drive, Fax, Dropbox, USB, OneDrive, or FamilySearch.
  5. Touch the button for “Press to Scan.”
  6. The next screen shows options to “View and Edit Scan.” There are buttons on the lower left to zoom, split, fit, crop, and rotate the scan.  Splitting is an option to cut the image in half and then select which half to send.


The smartphone or tablet must install a QR Reader app (Quick Response code).  After scanning, the document scanner displays a QR code on the screen. The user scans the QR code to transfer the scan to the smartphone or tablet.


At the “Email Document” screen, select the “To:” field by touching the right end of its input bar.  The bar turns green when selected. Type the destination email address into the “To:” field using the keyboard on the touch screen.  Editing the “Cc:,” “Subject:” and “Message:” fields are optional.

Touch the “Send” button.


Insert the USB drive into the USB port on the tabletop. The port looks like half of a black golf ball.

Fax (U.S. fax numbers only)

Type the destination telephone number and an Email address to receive confirmation. The other fields are optional.  Touch “Send.”

Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, FamilySearch

These destinations all require that the user have a preexisting account with the particular service. The user logs in to the destination service with their user identification and password for that service.  The speed of uploading usually depends on the speed of the destination site and the speed of the Internet connection, not on the document scanner.
