AU Library has invested in a number of book scanners, which make it far easier to scan books in a better quality than normal scanners. Scanned files can either be sent to your email or directly to a USB drive.
However, you should be aware that, according to copyright law, it is only permitted to scan for personal use. Sending the files to others, or uploading them to Brightspace etc., is not permitted. It is also illegal to scan sheet music. Violation of copyright law may result in legal consequences. You can read more about copyright and what is permitted.
