About Scanning

Scanning is available for free to all library patrons (including HGSE students, faculty and staff as well as visiting researchers) on the Gutman Library's 2nd floor via a Bookeye scanner and a multi-purpose printer/copier/scanner.

Bookeye Scanner

This overhead scanner supports high-resolution, multi-page scanning and its live preview function allows you to see the results of your scan as you go. Scans can be created in a variety of formats (PDF, TIFF, JPG, and more) and can be saved to a USB drive, directly to your device, delivered via email, or uploaded to the cloud (Google Drive, SharePoint, OneDrive, etc.).

Multi-Purpose Printer/Copier/Scanner

This scanner requires a HarvardKey and, therefore, its use is limited to current HGSE students, staff, and faculty.

If this is your first time using a Gutman Library multi-purpose printer/copier/scanner, you will need to enter your HarvardKey email address and password.

  1. Swipe your HUID card (skinny stripe) at any Ricoh printer to log in.
  2. Select “Scan” and then “Scan to Email.” 
  3. Place your documents on the feeder at the top of the printer or lift the top to scan pages individually. 
  4. Select “Settings” to confirm or change the default scan settings. 
  5. Select “Scan.” Items will be scanned and sent to your Harvard email address.
