You may not be aware of this but you can use our library MFD (MultiFunctional Device) to do all of these things:
- Scan items and send them to your @cam email address as a PDF, for free!
- Scan or photocopy multiple-page documents using the feeder on top of the machine – even if they’re two-sided! (Multiple-page documents can be scanned into one whole document).
- Staple your copied/printed documents!
- Send print jobs from your own laptop or workstation! (Instructions here).
The library MFD is located in the Print Room next to the Library Office. We have just written new instructions on how to use the MFD for scanning and copying and displayed them in the Print Room. They are also available on our IT Facilities website here.
There are two other MFDs located in Rooms G30 and 154. You can collect (‘release’) the print jobs that you send from a computer in the library (or from your laptop or workstation) from any of these.
Undergraduates can find out how to send and pay for photocopying and printing here.
Postgraduate students and researchers can ask library staff to credit their account from a grant/ledger code to pay for printing and photocopying.
The scans are in colour, and we think they are of great quality, as well as being quick and easy to do as compared with using a traditional flatbed scanner! Give it a go! But maybe don’t what this Minion is doing!
