Scanning to USB drive
Microform scanner/printer machines at U.C. Berkeley, allow users to scan pages to a USB drive for free.
Files can be saved as PDF, JPG, TIFF & PNG files, in either single page or multi-page files.
These files can be transferred to a laptop or sent as attachments to email from public computers in the library using a Calnet Login.
Ask the helpful News/Micro Library staff for assistance with scanning to a USB drive.
Scanning to Print
To print directly from scanner/printer machines:
UCB Students, Faculty and Staff:

Please note: for ease of use, it is recommended scanning to a USB drive; then send files as attachments to email or upload to your laptop. Only a single page can be printed at a time, not multi-page files.
