1. Date Submitted: 02/06/12 13:34
2. Project Name: BookScan Station for Boca Raton, Jupiter, Treasure Coast Libraries
3. Project Contact Information:
Name:
William Miller
Email:
miller@fau.edu
Department:
Libraries
Telephone Number:
297-3717
4. Project Narrative: (Must be tied into what educational benefits will be received by the students, faculty; what goals are going to be achieved etc.)
 

Project Narrative

Boca Raton:  has one scanner which is heavily used;  additional one now needed.

Jupiter:  The Jupiter campus library over the past year has seen an increase in the number of students requesting use of scanners as a no-cost alternative to printing various materials used for course assignments.  At present, the library has a scanning station associated with a PC and used exclusively for assistive technology needs.  In response to the increase in scanning requests, the library placed a second PC-based station for general use within its computer lab.  However, due to software glitches, this arrangement has not been completely satisfactory.   It would be of benefit to students to have improved access to scanning technology by way of a free-standing BookScan station within the library.

 Treasure Coast:  Same as above. Students have access to nothing that does color or scans multiple pages.  During a recent trial of a scanner at this campus, student feedback was very positive.
