Self-service scanner with a computer – a new service of the digitalization of printed materials and Burning Mechanic

Last week, in the study room in Library, we installed a new computer (OS WinXP) and scanner for theA4 format as a new service of the library. It is for all users-meaning students and employees alike: - Opportunity of a freely accessible PC station with a self-serving construction of digitalized tests from printed materials. - The scanner is equipped with a dia-adapter that allows scanning transparent copies like transparency film or negative films. - OCR opportunity (transmission of scanning text into an edited format) - parameters of the scanner: hardware resolution 4800x9600dpi, bite depth 48bits, - access to the internet

Scanner instructions are accessible directly from the desktop in PDF format. We recommend you use help that is detailed and localized for the programs.

Installed programs:
•    Microsoft Office 2003
•    Nero 6
•    Scanning software HP
•    Graphical applications:  HP PhotoSmart, Zoner Photo Studio 5
•    Internet search engines: Firefox 2, Internet Explorer 7
•    online WinSPIRS database – MEDLINE and EMBASE
•    accessible electronic database at the 3. MF
•    antiviruses: AVG 7, Spybot
•    printing program to print in room 222

A directory for your documents and scanned pictures can be found at D:/Documents/.

Disk C: is daily returned to its original state and all that is added will be erased.
Disk D:/ is not erased and so your documents will stay.
