Webinar 1: Self-serve book scanning systems that are available to 70% of students at US universities

High-speed self-serve book scanning systems instantly turn your print collections into digitize-on-demand collections. They can scan a 30 page book excerpt in 1 to 5 minutes without damaging book spines and they have many important capabilities that are not available on ANY multifunction copier. These systems are often called the most important piece of technology in the library. They make PDF files instead of paper copies, but can print too, thus eliminating the need for copiers. A copier replacement option can be purchased or not, depending on whether a restrictive copier contract is in place. The systems you will see in the Webinar can clip, crop, split pages, remove fan & gutter easily extract specific text & images and annotate with text, graphics and emojies. Students can even scan their thesis papers and order printed books (hard- or paperback)!


This webinar also includes info about POD - wonderful outreach service that allows patrons to bring in their old print photos, scrap books, high school yearbooks, children's art, scan them and turn them into color glossy coffee table books.
