Central Libraries Install Self-service KIC Scanners

March 1, 2010

The Central Libraries of Baylor University are excited to announce the installation of three KIC scanners for client use in the Moody and Jones Libraries. The KIC (Knowledge Imaging Center) scanner can scan books, journals, magazines, class notes and other documents of any size up to 17 x 24 inches in black and white or full color. Users can then save those images to their personal flash drives for quick, convenient storage.

In addition to offering high-quality images for research and study purposes, the KIC scanner will also aid Baylor in its sustainability efforts.

"The KIC scanner will be a huge help in allowing us a more sustainable solution for student success," said Smith Getterman, Baylor University sustainability coordinator. "The fact students can now save these documents for research use instead of printing them off will allow the University to cut down on paper and toner consumption and still give students access to the information they need. This will have a major impact on the amount of paper the library recycles and amount of waste generated by our libraries on campus. It's an exciting development."

For added convenience, flash drives are available for purchase at Java City on the Garden Level of Moody Library.
