Newman Library scanners

Newman Library has several scanners located around the building for patron use. Some scanners are free to use and can scan documents or photos (some are better for one or the other though). Additional scanners are available through the Innovation Space Lab (located in 1140 Torgersen Hall). Please contact the Innovation Space at (540) 231-4826 for more assistance with their computer lab and services.
