Meet Polk’s newest rockstar!



Through the University’s Student Technology Program, Polk Library is purchasing two walk-up, super-fast scanners as a FREE alternative to photocopying or monkeying around with traditional flatbed scanners.  Unlike those devices, the KIC operates with a touch-screen interface and features quick output of digital files and automatic file naming to complete reproduction needs quickly.  Users can save to a USB drive or email themselves their files directly from the kiosk interface.   The machines also improve on typical scanners and photocopiers through auto-rotating, auto-cropping and “gutter removal” functions.  Users can select from different qualities and can save as .pdfs (both searchable and non),. jpgs and even output as a text-to-speech sound files.   One machine is already set up in Polk 101, a second will be installed in the University Archives and Area Research Center on the 3rd floor. They are free to use for everyone, always.
