In the early days of digital interlibrary loan and digital document delivery, the available software was simple and image quality expectations of requestors were low. Times have changed. The demand for faster workflow delivery and perfect, printer-ready images has made the current software environment complex, creating significant challenges in training new employees. BSCAN ILL simplifies existing processes and produces perfect, printer-ready images.
BSCAN ILL starts by eliminating the need to manually enter requestor information. BSCAN ILL automatically reads the information that is required by interlibrary loan document delivery software from scanned pull slips, not only saving time but also eliminating human error.
Articles are scanned using one of a family of high speed face-up scanners: Click Mini, Click, and Bookeye 4 V3, V2 & V1. By eliminating the constant book flipping required by flatbed scanners, these face-up scanners are three to five times faster than the fastest face-down scanners, and they do not cause book spine damage. For low volume ILL operations, BSCAN ILL also runs BookEdge flatbed scanners, employing their book edge feature and a faster mode that scans two pages at a time.
Once articles are scanned, BSCAN ILL's powerful image treatment capabilities automatically eliminate skew and remove unwanted black borders, fan and gutter.
Finally, BSCAN ILL automatically sends requests through ILLiad/Odyssey, Ariel, RAPID, Clio, Article Exchange, Relais, FTP, and e-mail and can notify ILLiad/Odyssey in each case, all without any need for further human intervention. Resending articles is also a snap.
Bookeye® 4 V2 Scanner
With this latest member of the Bookeye® family, Image Access placed an emphasis on developing a scanner which is compact, easy to operate and competitively priced; to bring high end professional scanning to an even larger population of users. The efficient Bookeye® 4 digitizes source material such as bound documents at high speeds in up to 600 dpi optical resolution and formats up to DIN A2.
Over 17 years of electronic, optical and mechanical engineering experience went into the creation and manufacture of the Bookeye® 4. The clever mirror mechanism captures the document precisely from edge to edge, whether it is a flat document or a book open at an angle of 120 degrees.
The V-shaped book cradle was optimized to reduce the risk of damage to book spines and binding during digitization. The book cradle holds the open book at an angle of 120 degrees; enough to effectively scan the contents of a page, while gently preserving the original subject matter.
Bookeye® 4 V2 has all the advantages of a more expensive standalone device. Outfitted with an integrated color touchscreen and monitor, Bookeye® 4 can reach unrivaled scanning speeds and process large volumes of data independent of any external peripheral devices - a typical feature of all Image Access scanners.
It takes approximately 1.6 seconds for the Bookeye® 4 to capture and process the images of two pages of a DIN A2 sized book scanned at 200 dpi optical resolution. Once the image is on the screen, modifications can be made to scan parameters such as brightness, color or contrast without having to rescan. Users operate the system intuitively, guided by clear and well-structured menu commands on the touchscreen. Scanned images can be saved to a USB flash drive or Cloud, sent via email, printed on a connected or network printer, or uploaded to an FTP Server.
Bookeye® 4 V2's solid build, innovative features and competitive pricing make it an ideal book copier for large groups of users; for example, in a university library. Some of the advantages of using a Bookeye® 4 instead of a standard copier include the Bookeye®'s built-in book cradle for gently handling bound materials, its speed and simplicity of operation, and the fact that the resulting digital images substantially reduce, and in most cases eliminate, the need to print scanned material.
High Speed Scanning: High Speed Scanning: Image Access scanners always run at rated speeds regardless of how powerful your computer is. We do a full scan into the scanner memory at full speed, without any stops. We're the only scanner company that does that. Only the time between scanning and output are dependent upon the transfer speed of the network and the computer, and even our transfer rate is twice as fast as competing products because data is transferred to your workstation at 1 Gigabit speeds, while other scanners use significantly slower transfer rates (1/2 Gigabit or less).

Works Well With Others: Create JPEG, PDF (both searchable and image-only), or TIFF file formats and save to network (PC, server, FTP).
Easy to Use: Single button scanning, optional foot pedal, built-in display, automatic laser-assisted profile detection and automatic format recognition ensure uncompromised scan results.
High Duty Cycle: High Duty Cycle: Bookeye scanners are designed for high-volume, professional use. Their duty cycles far exceed that of desktop scanners.
Clear, Crisp, Colorful Scans: Fast scanning in B&W, grayscale and color, high-quality resolution of up to 400 dpi (with 600 dpi option). We've made it our business for over 15 years now to be experts in image resolution, and since there is some confusion among users regarding this matter, we've provided a white paper that debunks some longstanding myths.

State of the Art Illumination: Bookeye's bright white LED illumination lasts significantly longer than other lighting systems. LED lights also consume less power and produce far less heat.
Easy Setup: Bookeye scanners connect over your network using standard IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and can be operated by a standard browser without drivers or add-on cards.
No Warm Up Time: Bookeye scanners are ready to scan anytime you are. Other scanners can require several minutes to warm up before use.
Room to Grow: Firmware upgrades are available online and are directly downloadable to the Bookeye using a standard browser.
Environmentally Responsible: We all know that scanning and saving images to email, USB, etc., rather than photocopying or printing saves paper and toner, but it's hard to get a feel for just how much savings are likely.
Remote Scanner Management: You're in full control from any browser. Change any and all scanner settings remotely or using Bookeye's built-in touch screen.
User Statistics Monitoring: Bookeye lets you manage and monitor the usage, statistics and settings of each scanner you own. The reports are automatically uploaded and available online from your web browser.
