The T2300 can scan a document up to 36" wide at up to 600 dpi. There is no length limitation, but it must be a loose, unbound document. At the Computing & Media Services (CMS) desk, staff will give you a slip with the cost of your scan. After paying at the Reserve desk and bringing your receipt back to the CMS desk, your document will be scanned. You can save a scanned document to your flash drive as a TIFF, JPEG, or PDF file. Alternatively, you can print the scanned document for the cost of printing (the scanning charge will be waived).
Copying and Printing
The T2300 prints on semigloss paper, up to 42" wide. To copy, bring your paper document up to the Computing & Media Services (CMS) desk to be copied. To print, bring your file as a TIFF or JPEG on a flash drive. The image should be set to your desired dimensions, with at least one side that is less than or equal to 41.6", to account for .2" margins. A 42" wide image can be scaled or cropped at the printer. At the CMS desk, staff will verify the size of your print and give you a slip with its cost. After paying at the Reserve desk and bringing your receipt back to the CMS desk, your document will be printed.
