Book scanning allows you to obtain a digital copy of any bound book.
You can conduct computerized searches to find specific portions within the text and have multiple users access to the book from any device.
Optimize your time when finding key portions of text by typing in keywords and phrases. With paper-bound books it is nearly impossible to find a particular sentence without reading through the entire book.
ScanHouse book scanning services can make it possible to do digital keyword searches that are incredibly fast and effective. Either within a single book or within your entire library.
ScanHouse has a way to carefully scan delicate pages of aging historical books so they can be preserved throughout time. In a way, you could put a stop to the continuous deterioration of records. Old books or newspapers are usually stored beneath glass in order to preserve their quality, but this limits the amount of people who can view them. Once these historical gems have been scanned into the digital format you no longer have to go to the museums in order to see them. The files can be uploaded to educational websites or document sharing programs for unlimited access by researchers, students, and the public.
With our book digitizing service, you can create durable paper copies that can be displayed instead of using originals, which may need to be preserved for research by future generations. With advancements in scanning technology today, disturbing original pages by handling them is no longer necessary.
Non-destructive bound book scanning provides accurate digitization of your valued books without damaging the original.
We use a special book scanning technology that allows us to scan entire books while keeping them intact. This delicate process is remarkably fast and accurate. The book scanner creates crisp, clear images of the pages and corrects the most of curved page distortion caused by the book’s binding. Text restoration can be performed for faded or hard-to-read sections of the text and we can erase signs of dirt or smudges that may be visible on the original pages.
Non-destructive book scanning is a more detailed process and does cost more than destructive book scanning. However, the best part about this type of book scanning is that your books will be returned to you in the same condition as when we first received them.
Destructive book scanning is a cheaper option that allows you to trade in a book's integrity in return for the complete content as a superior digital copy.
This type of book scanning is typically done for books that need to be converted into digital format when the owner does not require the original book back, or is happy with the loose pages which can later be re-bound.
This is a more cost effective book scanning option that still results in the same high quality scanned images.
With this method, our professional technicians disassembles the book binding so that the flat pages can be fed through a sheetfed scanner.
The finished product consists of a digitized book with superior image quality.
