Scan with MyPrint

The following steps will automatically send a scan to your brown.edu address. If you need to send a scan to someone else, you can simply forward the email to them.

  1. At the printer, swipe your Brown ID card.
  2. Place your document on the scanner bed or in the multi-page document feed.
    Long document? We recommend scanning in batches of 50 pages or less - files are sent by email, and too large an email may have issues sending.
  3. On the screen attached to the printer, tap the Scan icon.
  4. If desired, tap the Subject or Filename buttons to customize these values, or Settings to change scan settings such as color mode, resolution, and file type (full list of settings included below).
  5. Tap Scan. The document will scan.
  6. After scanning, you will see buttons to Scan More pages or Send the document.
  7. After tapping Send, the document will be sent to your Brown email address.
  8. When you are finished, tap the Log Out button on the top right.
