Application to Borrow A Microfilm Scanner

The microfilm scanner is the ST Imaging ViewsScan 4. The ViewScan 4 can view roll microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards, and jackets. The ViewScan 4 has an 18-megapixel camera and the included software creates compact files with stunning quality, whether black and white or grayscale.

The overhead scanner is the CZUR ET-18 Pro book scanner that can digitize up to 18.89” x 14.17” with a thickness up to 1.96”. Simply use with your computer (XP, Win 7/ 8/10/11,32/64-bit; macOS 10.11 and above).  This overhead scanner can be used to digitize oversized materials as well as bound materials that are too fragile to be scanned on a flatbed scanner.

The Mustek A3 1200S flatbed scanner can scan up to 600 ppi with a maximum scanning size of 11.6” x 16.4”. The lid easily detaches giving you the ability to scan bound materials that can lay flat. This scanner is compatible with Windows 11 / 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP (Service Pack 3), Mac OS X 10.7~10.12, and Linux Ubuntu 1604 (32bit/64bit) / Fedora 24 (32bit/64bit).

c. Condition: When the material is received, the borrower should inspect it upon unpacking, compare it with the condition report provided by HSLC, and record its condition. Any damage or discrepancies must be reported immediately by telephone and subsequently in email to HSLC. Unless specific advance permission has been obtained from HSLC, the borrower must not alter, clean, or repair the scanner.
