We are thrilled to announce improved public computing and printing service. Following an upgrade on Friday, March 10, the library is providing better print management to the many patrons who visit to create and print resumes, research papers, and other personal or business documents.
As an added benefit, the library is offering, for the first time, public scanning service. Documents can be scanned as black and white images for attaching to email messages, saving to flash drives, and other purposes. This function complements existing library computer service providing access to desktop workstations with office software; laptop and mobile devices; and wireless internet service and printing from patron-owned devices.
Technical Services Librarian Becky McDole observes, “Patrons regularly clock a total of 2000 hours of desktop computer use per month. It’s gratifying we are able to offer this new service, which has been regularly requested, by leveraging existing technology.” Assistance with scanning is available at the Reference Desk.
