How Can a Hi-Res Book Scanner Benefit My Library?

book scannerIt’s easy to love books. The sensation of flipping a page in a slightly musty tome is utterly unique. We all have our favorite volumes lying around the house or sitting in a place of honor on a shelf. But when it comes to business and keeping track of information, books can also present a host of problems. They’re unreliable, can wear and tear easily, and are easy to misplace. That’s why more and more libraries and archives, both private and federal, are starting to see the benefits of a high resolution book scanner.


A high-resolution book scanner provides an ineradicable copy of historical and personal documents. Without the power of a book scanner, libraries have to rely on the trustworthiness of their patrons and durability of their books to function. If a book or a document is lost or otherwise damaged, the best case scenario is waiting for another branch or service to deliver a new copy but rare or obscure works may be gone forever. A high-resolution book scanner provides libraries and archives with the security that no information can be truly lost.


An affordable, high-resolution book scanner can attach easily to a card reader or coin operated mechanism to generate revenue. This works especially well when using a high-resolution book scanner to replace a public photocopier or similar device. Not only are book scanners capable of generating higher quality images at a substantially lower cost than photocopiers, but they offer patrons the convenience of emailing or storing the file on a USB drive.


High-resolution book scanners are also significantly less wasteful than photocopiers. Aside from the obvious, and huge, ecological benefit of saving paper, a book scanner can operate much more quickly and using a fraction of the electrical power required to operate a photocopier.
