The new way of reading
With the increase in the popularity of e-books and digital books, migration to digital library systems is now a common phenomenon.Even in certain old government organizations old records are archived for reference and exhibitions. In many nations, the Right to Information department has implemented online availability of old data through digitization and scanning.
Books and other hardbound materials are scanned with special face-up book scanners or scanners with a V-shapped book cradle where the books are placed, while an automatic mechanism is used for flipping the pages. Book scanners also have a high end digital camera and strong LED lamps attached at both ends to capture the content with clarity.
Although many would prefer to scan books with usual MFD scanners, using these devices not only deteriorate the bind of the books but also takes a lot of time to serve the purpose.
