Two iMac computers with access to lynda.com online training libraryis are located opposite of the Library Service Desk on level 2. These stations are exclusive to lynda.com users. 

These lynda.com stations have the following set of applications installed:

3 Minolta SL 1000 and 1 Scan Pro 2000 microfilm stations for reading, scanning, editing, and printing microfilms and microfiches are located on level 1. Scanned pages can be saved to the Desktop or external media or e-mailed.

Those working with full reels of film can auto-scan entire reels to create a PDF copy for personal use. In addition to faster, automated scanning, these stations provide tools to enhance difficult-to-read film. They also have on-screen search features and can convert a microfilm image into a searchable PDF.

Users can log into these scanning workstations with their Emory Net ID and password. Visitors can log in using the User ID and password provided in the instruction guide at these workstations.

The Scan Pro 2000 station is available during library open hours; however, we ask that during working hours (8:00 A.M. - 8:00 P.M) patrons sign-up for half-hour to two hour blocks of time on a sign-up sheet next to the machine. After hours, no sign-up is required. The Minolta SL 1000 stations do not require sign-up.
