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.

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. Provide payment to the coin, bill, and card acceptor. No card is necessary when paying with bills or coins.  Pennies are not accepted. Credit cards are not accepted, only Library printing cards.
  6. Select the Scan Settings by touching the desired buttons from the color, quality, and file type options. Encrypting PDF files is optional. The quality settings are: Standard: 200 DPI, High Quality: 300 DPI, Photo: 600 DPI.
  7. Touch the button for “Press to Scan.”
  8. 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 have a QR Reader app (Quick Response code) installed.  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 is optional.

Touch the “Send” button.


Insert the USB drive into the USB port on the table top. 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 a 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.
