In Remote Desktop Connection the local resource can be a printer (as you know). But I think the scanner must be closely connected with the computer and I do not see it as an option in RDC.  

So yes, scan to desktop and copy to the RDC.

Someone else may know differently but that is how I would do it.

Scanner can't be used through RDP. Only the print function.

I'm not too familiar with this model. It may support network scan. If not, then no, you can't use with RDP.

As suggested diggisaur, Officejet 6500 will not support network scan,

You need to have Network scan scanner, To scan in RDP,

Below link is third party tool, which will help you to scan in RDP for normal scanner also,

You can try configuring virtual scanner in remote desktop, and link virtual scanner to your locally plugged scanner.
