Engineering Library.) All public access computers have the ability to print. To print a document,
choose File > Print, or if you are still on the desktop (not yet in the document), click on the

A scanner is available in the reading room (Map B-10

Others may use it when it is not needed by a student or other library user with a disability. To
use the scanner:
- Place the document you wish to scan in the scanner.
- On the desktop of the computer next to the scanner, open the applications folder (it may
already be open).
- Open the "Scan & Edit Images" icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Open Adobe Acrobat X
- Click on "Create" in the upper left hand corner, and select "PDF from Scanner," then choose the
color of the document
- When the page is finished scanning you will have to choose whether the scan is complete or
whether you want to scan more pages (you will not see any of the scanned images until you indicate
that the scan is complete). If you choose to scan more pages, have a new page in the scanner before
hitting "OK," as the machine will begin scanning immediately.
To troubleshoot problems with the scanner, please consult the help contact information affixed
to the scanner.
