Book Copier

The Library is testing a new method of document scanning/ copying, the Zeutschel OS 12000 BookCopy. The scanner is designed especially for scanning books and large format documents like music scores and art books. It scans from above which allows a better work flow for multiple page scans.  The machine is being tested in the Library Annex I till June 30. Bring a usb drive to store your scans. Please help evaluate this machine by trying it out and using the evaluation form at the machine.
