Scannx: Book Scan Center

The Scannx Book Scan Center is an integrated scanning system with touch screen monitor to guide you through the scanning process. The system includes an 11”x17” beveled edge book scanner that permits you to scan a book right into the binding edge without breaking the spine. Scannx can scan documents in many file formats, including PDF, Word Docs, Jpegs and Tiffs, right to your email or smartphone.

Visit the copier area on the first floor of the Reading Room to try the scanner yourself!

LibGuides 2.0

Like SJC’s site-wide redesign, LibGuides got a makeover this summer, too.

LibGuides are web-based research guides with librarian-curated content in each subject area offered at St. Joseph’s College. With this recent overhaul, students can expect to find the most current information on books, articles, websites and more. Librarians continue to add resources to guides in their subject specialties and faculty are encouraged to contact librarians about creating guides for their own class.

Check out your department’s LibGuide and contact your subject librarian to make recommendations or requests.
