Scanning Documents at the Liverpool Public Library

I think that the scanner is one of the best inventions of the personal computer era. With it, I’m able to take

that I can store on my computer and reproduce almost perfectly later on. But there are a few things you need to
know before you get started with our scanners, and that’s what icon this handout is all about.
