Of all the devices in the Media Development Center (213 Hale Library), the scanners are most frequently used by students and faculty/staff. There are three types:
The flatbed scanners are the most commonly used. They are the most versatile, as they have the ability to scan pictures, drawings, documents, and books that measure up to 12 inches by 17 inches. Professors use them to scan book pages to post online or to show via document cameras. Architecture students use them to scan layouts and floor plans for digital storage. Other uses are to edit a scanned document and archive pictures.
Do you have a media file or DVD that won’t play in Windows Media Player or QuickTime? Try the VLC media player, a free, open-source, cross-platform (Windows, OSX, Linux, and more) software. It will play a wide variety of media formats without the need for downloading additional codec packs.
