Zeutschel Chrome DIN A2 Book Scanner



The Library provides a Zeutschel Chrome colour book scanner for the use of patrons.

Unlike photocopiers, these overhead scanners do not damage old or fragile books and journals. Scans can be saved on USB drives in Multipage PDF (standard), PDF, TIFF, Multipage TIFF, JPEG or PNG format.

Instead of scanning to a USB drive, prints can be made (A4 format) at a cost of € 0.10 per page.

The book scanner is located in the Main Library's 1st floor reading room.


You may use a scanner to copy for non-commercial research or private study under certain limited conditions. You should only scan for your own private use and you may not make your scanned copy available to other people (for example, by including it in a PowerPoint presentation or on a web site). You should not alter anything that you have scanned in any way.
