Scan-tastic Summer Scan-o-Rama!

Announcing the new KIC Click Mini face-up scanner in the Beren Study Center!

Piles of papers taking over your workspace? Scan your articles and save them as PDFs!

Tired of scanned documents that you can’t copy, paste, or edit? Save your scans in Rich Text Format (.rtf), or as a Searchable PDF.

Simply align your document with the front edge of the scanner and tap the Scan button.

Our old KIC BookEdge flatbed scanner has not retired. It has moved to the area across from the Reference Desk. It’s your best bet for producing high resolution scans of images.


If you have logged into EndNote or Web of Science recently, you may have noticed a splash screen inviting you to sign in to Kopernio – a free browser plug-in and web platform that enables one-click access to academic journal articles, across library subscriptions, publisher websites, open access repositories, databases and search engines. We are working with the provider, Clarivate Analytics, to properly configure Kopernio for use by the Einstein community, but it is not yet available. For now, we recommend that you just click “Ignore this” to get past the prompt. For more information on Kopernio, see the FAQ on the EndNote website.
