If you find material that you want to take with you, the library provides scanners and a photocopier for visitor use. It is a good idea to download the scanner drivers before your visit. The scanning stations are connected to the Internet, but it is advisable to save your scans to a flash drive, rather than sending large image files via email. Digital cameras are also recommended.
