It is possible to scan on any of our networked machines free of charge. You may also want to use the Office Lens app.
You can scan documents on any Konica Minolta device on campus. To use this function simply login to any Konica Minolta device and on the main menu select Scan. Documents for scanning can either be placed in the document feeder or directly on the glass.
Alternatively, Office 365 offers a scanning app called Office Lens. This can be installed on your mobile device. The app integrates with OneDrive and allows you to save scans directly to your OneDrive for Business account. Digital Training can provide further help and advice on using Office Lens.
If you require assistance with any of our scanning options, please ask at the Information Services desk in Fountains.
The Konica Minolta devices on campus offer three scanning options:
Scan to OneDrive
This option saves scans directly to your YSJ OneDrive space.
The first time you use this service, you will receive an email to ask you to give permission for the PaperCut MF service to save documents to your OneDrive folder. Click the Login to OneDrive for Business button and click Accept. You must activate this service within 24 hours of your first scan for your document to be delivered.
An Apps folder will be created within your personal OneDrive space. Inside this will be a Scans for PaperCut MF folder and your scans will be saved within this.
Scan to email
This option will send scans to your York St John University email address as an attachment.
Scan to a USB memory stick
If you have a USB memory stick formatted to a standard Windows files system you also have the option of scanning documents directly onto the stick.
To use this function logon to any Konica Minolta device, insert your stick into the USB port on the right hand side of the machine and press the Access button on the panel. After a short delay the USB stick will be recognised and a screen will open with the option to 'Save a document to external memory'.
Documents for scanning can either be placed in the document feeder or directly on the glass. When you are ready to scan, press the large circular button which should now be illuminated blue.
I am a visually impaired or disabled student - can I get help scanning documents?
Yes. You will need to fit a list of criteria to qualify for items to be scanned for you. There is further information on this and other Library services available to you in our Accessibility Support guide or ask for further information at the Information Services desk on the ground floor of the Fountains Learning Centre on our York Campus.
