KIC Bookedge Scanner

You may have seen the information about the Bookedge scanner on the library's home page.  According to that page:  it scans, it copies, it saves, it emails, it prints.

It actually does a lot more.   


1.  It's called a book edge scanner because the scanning glass is tilted.  This allows people to press the center of the book or bound journal against that edge to get a full copy of everything when it's really bound tightly in the center.  No more spines broken by people trying to get all of the text copied.

2.  There is also a document feeder that will scan single or double sided pages.  People copying notes love it.


1.  A copier is a scanner that prints.  You can print directly from the bookedge.

     a.  you can send it to the usual printer and use your Wildcard to pay.  This makes us the only place where you can use your Wildcard to print copies.

     b.  Those without Wildcards, including community users, can send the printing and then pick it up and pay at Circulation on the Lower Level.

Saving:  You can scan/copy and save it directly to a USB drive.

Email:  you can scan/copy and email it directly to yourself  (the old way = save to desk top, open email, attach to email sent to yourself.

Printing:  as above, you can send it to the university system and use your Wildcard or pay at Circulation.


  • Modifying images:  you can crop, rotate, adjust brightness, etc. before printing/emailing/saving

  • Text to speech:  You can scan an article or book chapter or other document and it will save the text as an MP3 file you can listen to.  The quality is surprisingly good.  It's not like an audio book, because it's very mechanical, but it is pretty accurate.

There are more features.  These are just the basics.  Stop by some time and we'll be happy to show it off.

Weber State University Student Artwork, Ceramics Department

Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing)

Five display cases filled with an array of ceramic objects are on view.  The objects were created by Weber State University students who were enrolled in one of the many upper level ceramics courses offered here.  They range from class assignments to proposal-based projects.   Many forming techniques that encompass coil and slab construction as well as others showing the use of a pottery wheel are exemplified here.  Accompanying these various forming techniques are numerous surfacing solutions.  They range from high temperature gas kiln reduction glaze firing to low fire electric kiln processes.  In our program, students learn to decorate and surface their objects through various processes and techniques that include slips, sigillatas, stains, and glazes.  With a breadth of skillsets and knowledge, each student begins to develop their own artistic voice, or identity.  This exhibit is a sampling of those individuals, and their talents.


2015 Design Arts Utah

Stewart Library, Lower and Middle Levels (Sept 25 - Dec 17, 2015)

Design concepts and objects included in this exhibition vary from toys to modes of transportation to building design. This exhibition demonstrates the work and the importance of design to our everyday experience.

Photographs by Kevin Mikkelsen
Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing)

Kevin Mikkelsen resides in North Ogden, Utah right at the base of the Wasatch Range. “Besides being a beautiful place to live, North Ogden is the perfect jumping off point in which to reach one of 7 National Parks, all within a 5 hour drive time. As time passes, and new things are seen, more miles are traveled, and more mountains climbed, that love progressively deepens and has become an inspiration in his photographic work. Capturing images through today’s digital and film technology has allowed Kevin to express that inspiration in the form of scenic landscapes and wildlife fine art prints.” We are pleased to have the opportunity to show 13 of Kevin’s beautiful images in the library, his complete works may be viewed by going to:
