OC Library 3D Macro Scanner

Booking and Usage Policies

The Macro Scanner may be reserved for class projects and assignments.  During this time the scanner will not leave the Oceanographic Campus Library.  

Students and faculty may book appointments here:

    • Choose a time slot that works for you.  Please add your name and everyone in your group's name to the booking.
    • If this is your first appointment, please book "Initial 3D Scan Appointment" for a 2-hour time slot.
    • If this is NOT your first appointment, please book either a 1-hour or 30-minute touchup session.  Do not book these until after your first initial scan appointment has been completed.
    • Don't procrastinate!  If you wait until the last week to scan, you may find that there are no time slots left.  This has happened in the past and students were not able to complete their scans.


The following policies apply to appointments:

  • Initial Scan Appointments are for 2-hour long sessions.
  • There are 1-hour follow-up and 30 min touch up appointments available AFTER you book your initial scan.
  • Students may not schedule two or more consecutive appointments.
  • An appointment will be canceled if the student is 15 minutes late.
  • If there are no current appointments booked, scanner use is first-come, first-served.
