So the assignment for the fire department seems easy enough, I just hope I don't damage any pictures.

Learning to use the scanners
In our last class, we were taken through the process of using the library scanners to copy the photographs for our assignment. We learnt about the proper techniques that are necessary in order to ensure that the photographs are not damaged in the scanning process. Obviously you have to be careful handling the photographs, as they are originals and some are quite old. We were shown how to use the scanner itself, which it ends up is pretty straight forward. We were also reminded that we have to be careful where we save our copies, as the library's computers will not keep things for very long.
