Find a PC computer with an Epson scanner connected to it. The IT Lab has a few computers located in the Annex with Epson scanners connected. If these computers are not available, ask the IT Lab Staff to help set up one of the scanners located on mobile carts. Before beginning your scan, make sure these steps are completed:


  • The USB cable is connected to the computer.
  • The power cord is plugged in.
  • The scanner is turned on.
