As of April 2012, Copy Central's Document Imaging Service passed the 100,000 page milestone of number pages digitally archived.
Digital imaging equipment was purchased, and Copy Central is moving forward with procedures and outreach to university administrative units, to enable them to begin using the new in-house system.

  3. Project Stats

Now complete and serving the NYU community, the Copy Central Digital Imaging Service is a professional scanning and archiving service that enables Copy Central to internalize document digitization responsibilities for other areas of the university. Resulting benefits include cost savings, easy paperless (electronic) reproduction of documents, less physical transportation of documents, and improved utilization of substantial wasted file cabinet space throughout the university.

For Service:

Led by:

  • Scott Lewis, Client Relations Manager (Project Leader)
  • Al DiMauro, General Manager 
  • Mart Lyons, Business Manager
  • Sean Nieves, Production Manager
  • Erick Small, Production Assistant 
  • Christian Grewell, e-Procurement Manager 

  • Over 105,000 pages have been scanned for electronic storage as of July 2012
  • Producing just one set of paper copies instead would be associated with nearly two metric tons of carbon equivalent emissions and over twelve trees; future emissions savings scale with further electronic reproduction of these scanned documents
  • Bobst, NYU School of Law, The Bursar's Office, Steinhardt, The Provost's Office, Wagner, NYU College of Dentistry and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Department have availed themselves of the service
