Scan and Email

We get asked from time to time if it’s possible to email an article from a copier. In the past the answer has been no. With an upgrade or two, the copiers in the Library can now email scanned items.

Step 1

Tap your ID card against the card reader to activate the copier and press SCAN next to the keypad. Place your document face down on the glass or face-up in the top document feed (not the bypass feed).

Tap the INPUT @ button to activate the keyboard below.

Type the email address you’d like the document to be sent to. Tap OK, and hit SCAN or the START button.

Step 5

Wait for a message saying SENDING E-MAIL (in the bottom left-hand side of the screen), to disappear.
email received

Step 6

Now check your email for a message from Bankstreet Scanner. Below is what your email should look like.

Emailing a scanned article is lot easier than scanning to a usb drive (and a lot less disruptive). Sometimes copiers don’t recognize a usb drive or a patron may pull a drive out too soon which has the effect of freezing the copier. Give scanning and emailing a try – remember it’s free!
