Why copy when you can scan for free?

For decades, the Appellate Division Law Library has provided patrons with the ability to make photocopies for a small fee. The copiers are still here, gobbling up dimes and using up plenty of paper. However, this is no longer your only option.

Over the last year, the library has purchased two scanners which can be used free of charge! One scanner works for paper documents (including books, magazines and newspapers) and the other works for microfilm and microfiche. Both scanners are easy to use, and both are capable of producing high-quality, text-searchable PDF files that can be emailed or saved to a flash drive.

Never used a scanner before? Not to worry; a staff member will be happy to show you how. Step-by-step instructions are also provided. So, next time you need a copy of an old bill jacket or a record on appeal, save your dimes and some trees and try out our new scanners!
