Have you ever needed to convert paper documents into an electronic format? Did you dread the amount of time it would take to scan each document? Did you know that Elon has DocSend units around campus that can help you convert documents to an electronic format and that allow you to scan in a snap?

Well, the DocSend allows you to:

  • Capture-and-delivery system that effortlessly converts hard copies to digital files for instant delivery or storage
  • Scan to E-mail recipients (including yourself), network storage, jump drive, or to print.
  • Supports both black and white and color scanning with resolutions up to 600 dpi.
  • Ability to convert a file to a Word document, image file (jpg or tiff), or a PDF.
  • Make edits and annotations at the unit.


Want to use this machine? Students can access this machine on the first floor of Belk Library in the copy room.  To view a list of other various offices and locations around campus with the DocSend visit the Installation page in the wiki.
