The book2net Spirit is the first entry level high resolution scanner of its time!

In the past, if you wanted to read a book for leisure or needed a textbook, you went to the library and sought it out – to later flip through the pages by hand. In today’s digital world, e-books are all the rage. It has become increasingly popular to read your favorite literature electronically through an e-book reader or opt for cheaper electronic versions of educational textbooks. But have you ever gone into a library and wished you could conveniently scan a specific book that might not be available online? Now you can, with book scanning devices like the book2net Spirit.

What is The book2net Spirit?


The book2net Spirit is the first entry level high resolution book scanner of its time. The Spirit is designed with intent to replace pesky photocopiers in public, government and corporate libraries. The Spirit is extremely cost effective and environmentally friendly, as it eliminates the need for paper, toner and maintenance. This will cut down on waste, dust and reduce energy consumption. To generate revenue, it can easily be attached to a cost recovery system or coin-op (where users pay for access to the service).
