Scanning using the photocopiers

"Scan to USB" | "Scan to Mail"

All the photocopiers in the University Library are equipped with a free scan function. Simply press the F4 key on the left of the photocopier's control panel. You can save your scans in one of two ways:

  • Save your scans to a USB thumb drive ("Scan to USB")
  • Send by e-mail ("Scan to Mail")

"Scan to USB"

  1. Place your LMUcard or Legic-Karte on the card reader, which you will find on the right-hand side of the copier.
  2. The amount of credit on the card will be checked and activated for the system. Please leave your LMUcard or Legic-Karte on the card reader during the entire printing procedure, including the final logout.
  3. Select the function "Copy" on the touch screen.
  4. Plug your USB drive into the appropriate slot. This is located on the outer right-hand side of the photocopier's control panel.
  5. Press the F1 function button.
  6. Place your original document on the platen (glass plate).
  7. Press the button "Datei speichern" (save file) at the top of the touch-screen.
  8. Select "im Speichergerät speichern" (save to device) as target.
  9. On the control panel press the start button with the green border. After the scan has completed you have 60 seconds to position your next document.
  10. Press # on the control panel to end the scan process and save the scan to the USB drive. Wait until the notification "Speichervorgang abgeschlossen" (scan process completed) appears before removing the drive.
  11. Press the home button (top left on the control panel) to return to the main menu.
  12. As soon as printing has finished, ensure you log out correctly using the logout button on the copier.
  13. When the display shows that the remaining credit has been booked back to your LMUcard or Legic-Karte, please remove your Card from the card reader. Please note: To ensure credit is booked back correctly, please do not remove your LMUcard or Legic-Karte from the card reader until the logout procedure has been completed. If necessary replace your LMUcard or Legic-Karte on the card reader.

Your scans will be saved in PDF format.

The USB drive must be formatted in the FAT32 format, otherwise you will see the error message "Speichermedium wurde nicht erkannt" (device could not be detected). The photocopier can only recognise the FAT32 format.top

You can view the confirmation that your scan has been sent under "Status gescann. Dat." This tab is located in the top line on the touch-screen.

Your e-mail address will be stored in a process history protocol. Press "Vorherig." (previous) on the touch-screen and select your e-mail address. This saves you having to enter it again every time.

You will find illustrated scan instructions on the wall poster near each of our photocopiers.
