Where in the library can I photocopy/scan/print?

In the library entrance hall a photocopier/scanner is available for SISSA users only.

How to scan a document

Users can scan documents and send the output (in pdf format) directly to a SISSA e-mail address. The files can be sent ONLY to users who have a SISSA e-mail address.
It is not possible to send scanned documents to external e-mail addresses.


1) press the Invio button on the left side of the panel;
2) on the touch screen:
         a. select E-mail Addr Entry (on the right);
         b. select E-mail Address;
         c. when a keyboard appears on the touch screen, type the SISSA user e-mail address where you wish to send the document and confirm by selecting OK;
         d. when the Ready to send - Enter Destination window appears again, select OK;
         e. the content of the window will change and the photocopier will inform you that it is Ready to send - Place original.
3) Place the original and press the AVVIO button on the right.

Please note: It is not possible to send very big files as a single attachment. The number of pages that users can scan during a single operation depends on the resolution and other parameters (e.g. color/black&white) selected prior to scanning.

How to print a pdf file

The photocopier is able to print documents in pdf format directly from a USB pen. The file has to be saved in the first two directory levels. PDF files created using recent versions of some software might not be recognized.
