Scanner Use Policies

The EinScan-SE Scanner can be used in the Oceanographic Campus Library (OCL) or borrowed and used in a Halmos College of Excellence (COE) lab.  The scanner and associated computer is on a wheeled cart.

The scanner is checked out on your NSU Library account and is subject to the following borrowing agreements:

  • The scanner may be checked out only to Ocean students, faculty, and staff.
  • The scanner may be borrowed for a 24 hour period.
  • The scanner may not leave the COE building.  If you are using it within a lab you may be required to fill a form provided by the Halmos COE Lab Assistant.
  • No remote renewals allowed- the scanner must be brought to an OCL employee, checked in, and then checked out if you wish to use it for more than 24 hours at a time.
  • This computer is a public workstation.  Save your data and remove it from the workstation before return.  The OCL is not responsible for data left on the computer and will clear any data left by the user nightly.
