Virtual Tour - Scanners

Scanner     Scanner

The Science Library has four flatbed scanners available for use (one on the large computer island and three on the small).  All are used in conjunction with PCs and have top-loading capabilities.  Capture Perfect software is available on the PC associated with the largest of the three scanners and may be used to convert scanned files to PDF format; color scanning is also available. Instructions [PDF] are located next to the scanner.

In addition, the three MCard photocopiers have the capacity to scan documents - please see the next stop on the tour.

Priority use is for scanning items from our collections, especially articles from print journals which may not leave the Science Library.  For additional scanning needs, visit the Tech Deck at the Undergraduate Library or the Knowledge Navigation Center at the Graduate Library.

Virtual Tour - New Books Area

New Books     New Books

Just inside the Current Periodicals Room is the new books area, where the latest science books to be cataloged are on display.  New books are added daily.  You can also view lists of new science books online.

New titles are displayed for about two weeks before being integrated into the collections on the 4th floor - each book contains a slip with the date it will leave the new book shelf.  To borrow a new title, take the book to the Shapiro circulation desk on the first floor and ask them to place a hold on it for you; the book will stay on display until the date indicated on the slip, and afterwards will be waiting at the circulation desk for pick-up.
