KIC Click Scanning Instructions

KIC Click  Scanners are a new option for scanning bound materials. They scan the material from overhead with each scan taking only a few seconds to complete.  There are four Click Scanners located on campus. Hunt Library has two Click Scanners, located on the 1st and 4th floor.  Mellon and Sorrells Library each have one Click Scanner.

How to scan with the Click Scanner

  1. Place the document/material face up. Place the middle of the book aligned with the blue vertical line on the scanner bed. The ideal horizontal laser guide position, as well as where to put your hands, is shown below.

Tips for Printing!

The best format for printing is JPEG.  Large PDF files can cause printing queue delays so it’s best to save your file and print it at a later date.  Try printing a few pages at a time.
