Nevis Scanning

If you have documents to scan, the fastest and most powerful scanner at Nevis is the Ricoh Aficio MP 6001 in room 119A; it's normally used a copy machine, but it can scan as well. It will send the scanned files to you via e-mail, either as TIFF or PDF files.

The scanner controls are not intuitive. The documentation can be confusing.

To use the scanner, the most important things to remember are STOP. LOOK. THINK. That will save you from much heartache.

The following instructions may help, but be prepared to explore menus to do what you want to do.
 

Setup

Line: 31 to 31
  Use the buttons on the left side of the screen to modify the scan settings. If you don't change anything, the machine will assume a black-and-white document to be scanned as a TIFF file.

  • The Scan Settings button is the one you'll probably find to be the most useful.
 
    • Use the Scan Type tab to select between black-and-white or color scanning.
    • Use the Scan Size tab if your original doesn't match a standard paper size. If you try to scan something of a non-standard size, you'll get an error message; you'll have to go to this tab and select one of the sizes.
