The Acetate Connection

Scrrraaaaattttcchhhhhhh! That’s the sound of car keys on the scanner. If you’re scanning anything other than books, magazines, or other paper products, please be extra careful with the scanner. Ask the lab consultant on duty for a piece of clear acetate (ok, technically it’s “Dura-lar, the acetate alternative”) to put down under the items you’re scanning–like car keys, candy, paper clips, your hands and face, pens and pencils, iPods, scissors, staplers, and so forth–so we can keep the scanner glass clean and scratch-free.
