Learn about the many advantages of a book scanner.

In an increasingly digital world, more and more record-keeping efforts employ digital records and book scanners in order to keep documents stored efficiently and securely. In fact, many businesses are going completely paperless. E-readers and e-books continue to grow in popularity among consumers. When it comes to book storage, there are many benefits of converting your library to a digital format using a book scanner. Here are 6 major reasons to scan your books for digital storage formats.

Simple Sharing

With e-books and other digital storage formats, you have much easier and quicker access to your books. Storing a book online or on your computer will allow you to read it from anywhere, and depending on the copyright on your book, you can share it with anyone via email or file-sharing service. If you frequently need to share or remotely access your library, a book scanner can help you convert to a digital organization.

Save Space

Filling your home or office with huge, overflowing bookshelves is not always feasible, but archiving or storing your books long term can make them difficult to access or even find. Luckily, digital storage formats can allow you to organize and store your entire library while leaving it totally accessible.

Save Weight

Moving or traveling can be difficult when you’re transporting books, as they can be the heaviest thing in your luggage. One easy way to save space and meet weight requirements for your luggage, bags, or other storage apparatus is to scan your books into digital formats. An e-reader or laptop is much easier to move and store than all the books these devices can hold.


Whether your books are archived, stored and filed, or even on display in shelving units, one print copy of a book is really only accessible a single way. But with book scanners, that book can be accessed from a number of devices, in a number of storage formats. Whether by CD, USB, cloudsharing service, or other digital storage formats, more people in more locations can access books as digital files.


Whether you want to protect your books from theft, loss, or damage, digitization allows you to better secure your library. This way, you won’t need to worry about losing or damaging your hard copy books through stains, rips, or other everyday risks to print books.


Books in your library may have already been damaged or are too delicate or old to feasibly handle frequently. The use of a book scanner can allow you to give these books new life by accessing them digitally as often as needed while still preserving the hard copies.
