Patron & Book Scanning


Patron Scanning

Libraries, universities, and other organizations with historical archives are expanding their research offerings and going green with modern self-serve equipment for their patron scanning. Companies like Zeutschel and the Wicks and Wilson division of the Crowley Company have great products like the Zeta Book Scanner, Crowley Overhead Document Scanner/Copier, and the W&W UScan Multi-format Scanner which handles microfiche, roll film and aperture cards too.

These walk-up devices provide the ability to not only view and print historical information, but also to digitize and save the content to a local USB or flash drive; printed to hard copy; or output to cloud, CD/DVD, and email—all in color, grayscale or bi-tonal.

Now you can easily scan historical books, magazines, files, ring binders, contracts, balance sheets or land use plans without cutting or damaging them. 

These great book scanners/copiers from Crowley and Zeutschel provide high-quality color images and automatic intelligent image enhancement, including cropping, de-skew, and correction of book/magazine curve distortion. These devices are great for libraries, archives, universities, and schools, as well as banks, insurance companies, and copy shops. Easy installation and convenient operation make them simple to use by your staff or self-service patrons.
