Posted by Scannx on Mon, Sep 08, 2014

Special Collections pose special challenges in today’s push for digital library materials. Patrons and researchers expect to be able to use even the most obscure and precious materials in a digital format. Libraries are responding by scanning special collections and archives to make them available online, or by providing access to a book scanner that is safe for delicate and bound materials. One of the best affordable tools for safe scanning is the patented book-edge scanning bed of the Scannx Book ScanCenter.
