Self Service Scanning is Here!

MCPL is experimenting with a self-service scanning station that provides an easy way to convert paper documents, photos and drawings into a digital format.

The "Simple Scan" station is an easy to use touch-screen scanning device that scans, saves, and sends all your documents, photos, magazines and more. The Simple Scan Station can automatically auto-crop, auto-straighten and auto-orient each page scanned.













You can save your scanned item in the following formats:

  • PDF's
  • Searchable PDF
  • Word
  • TIFF
  • JPEG


After you decide how you want your scanned item saved, Simple Scan's touch screen guides you through several ways to save or send it including:

  • Save to USB
  • Send to email
  • Send to Google Docs



We would like library patrons to try it out and help us decide whether we should keep the stations. Stop by the Elletsville Branch or the Main Library (second floor Reference Desk) to try one out today.
