Who Can Use?
Large format scanning services are available to members of the Rutgers University community.
Large Format Scanning Service
Large Format refers to documents exceeding the dimensions of 8.5" x 17". The Large Format Scanning system in use is a PhaseOne P45 mounted on a Hasselbach H101, with the capacity to scan documents up to 36" in width and 48 " in length with full 32-bit color. The scanner provides true optical resolution of up to 600 dpi. Several file formats are available for high quality presentations.
The Alexander Library staff will scan projects of 20 items or less. Projects encompassing greater than 20 items can be self-scanned by the user, after receiving training on the operation of the scanner. Scanner use is scheduled by advance reservation.
Smaller projects are temporarily stored as uncompressed tiff files, until retrieved by the requestor. Larger projects can be temporarily stored on the network in a selected format, for eventual retrieval by the user. The Alexander Library does not retain any file copies. The dimensions of the copies and the resolution required must be submitted in advance of scanning.
A modest usage fee is charged to cover the cost of experienced personnel required to administer and operate the underlying technology. Pricing is determined by the final size of the scanned image as described in the pricing grid below:
|Affiliation||First 150 MB||Additional 150 MB (per 150 MB)|
|RU Faculty, Staff and Students||$10.00||$5.00|
* A 310 MB scan would cost either $15.00 or $20.00 depending on your affiliation
