The bookedge scanners are best used for bound books where you're attempting to get an image of a flat page. If this does not describe your situation, please contact a Freedman Center Student Assistant for further assistance.
Setting up the scan
Create a folder in the D: Drive Storage folder to store your files in.
If the scanner is not on, turn it on using the switch on the bottom right hand side.
Open the program Adobe Acrobat DC from the Adobe icon on the desktop. Make sure the scanner is on or the software will not recognize the scanner!
