Central to Media Center printing services are its three laser printers, two of which are designated for foreign language faculty use. The Media Center Student Printer is a Hewlett Packard LaserJet 8150dn used as the default printer for the student workstations located in each of the three octoganal clusters that populate most of the Media Center space. The 8150dn is capable of both single-sided and double-sided printing and is prominently located near the entrance of the Media Center for convenient access. Color printing is available by special request to both students and faculty and is made possible by a Dell 5130cdn Laser Printer capable of printing both single-sided and double-sided documents.
Equally impressive are the Media Center's three scanners which include a book scanner and two high-speed document scanners, all capable of producing portable document files (pdfs), images, and editable texts from the materials they scan. The ScanSnap iX500 and S1500 document scanners scan both sides of a page at once and typically process a 50 page document in about two minutes. The Plustek OpticBook 4800 book scanner provides a special binder locater edge that allows it to scan bound pages without the crease shadows that plague other flatbed scans. From document acquisition to document printing, few UD facilities can match the unparalleled quality of those produced at the Foreign Language Media Center.
