SWPL has scanners that allow patrons to make high resolution digital copies of photos, documents, and slides. A Scannx BookScanner 7145 flatbed scanner allows for documents and photos up to 11x17 to be scanned and saved to a USB or sent to an email address. This scanner has optical character recognition (OCR) which allows for documents to be saved as an editable Word document or a searchable PDF. A Brother ADS-4000W is an office-style document feeder scanner that also does very well with photographs up to 8x10". This scanner can cover a lot of ground very quickly, scanning up to 35 pages per minute with a document feeder that holds up to 60 pages; be aware that these numbers are based on copy weight paper and will change with photos and other thicker documents. Finally, the PlusTek OpticFilm 135i is a specialized slide scanner with inserts for 35mm strip films/negative and 35MM mounted slides. All scanners are easily accessible to the public in the Copy Room on the Upper Level of the Library. Please remember to make a plan for storing your scans (thumb drive, email, cloud storage) before bringing a box of items to the library for the afternoon.
