In May of 2019 UMass Lowell Libraries purchased the ViewScan 4.7 microfilm scanner for use at the Center for Lowell History. Researchers are no longer limited to what they view / print. By using this powerful and versatile scanner, users can digitally capture and adjust key elements of microfilm and save the images in multiple formats. This improves both image quality as well as human and Optical Character Recognition readability. Embedded below are the instruction manuals for the ViewScan 4.7; first the quick start guide, then the full user manual.
