To provide duplex copies in a copier having a scroll-type document feeder 5, an

inverter transport 6 is disposed in the document feeding path of document feed belt 7 upstream of the copier scan aperture S. A deflector 9 is provided to selectively route documents 10 onto transport 6. Documents being processed are stored within the confines of feed belt 7 in scrolls 11, 12.

For simplex or first pass duplex copies, deflector 9 is held in the solid line position

bypassing inverter transport 6. Where duplex copies are desired, deflector 9, on the second pass, is moved to the dotted line position shown and inverter transport 6 started in the direction of the solid line arrow, The document 10 on feed belt 7 is routed onto inverter transport 6 following which inverter transport 6 is reversed (in the direction of the dotted line arrow) to return the document, in inverted

condition, onto feed belt 7 for exposure at scan aperture 8.
