Scanning directly to the LB-Shared-Drive

Normally when you scan documents on the print/copiers the files are sent as email attachments. This is fine when there are only a few documents to scan or if your email still below quota. But what happens if you have lots of scanning or no room left in your inbox.

Fear not!

Simply log on to the staff printer/copier (or the one in the Academic Services Team) as usual. Then do the following:

  1. Press the scan button on the console (this had a rectangular symbol with a line coming out of it)
  2. Click on the Folder tab on the touch screen
  3. By default documents will be scanned as black and white TIFF files, if you want something different then click on Scan Setting on the touch screen and make your selection
  4. Click on [00001] Library button on the touch screen

Now simply put your document under the glass or in the document feeder and click the green go button. The results will be uploaded directly to the “Store – Interim” on the LB-Shared-Drive. Files are named with the date and time that the scanning was done.

When finished scanning please click on the MENU and log off as usual.
