Book Scanning

Book Scanning

Do you have books that you want to archive before nature deteriorates over time? But how do you go about it? Whether the book has a spline or not, Global Document Services can scan and manage your books.

Digitally archived books last forever and can be easily accessed by anybody, on any device, for any reason. Our equipment can quickly, efficiently scan and store books, no matter the size, age, or whether it has a spline or not. We have specialized developed machines in-house that can capture and archive traditional books with a spline, with no problem.

Besides the fact that over time a book will deteriorate due to exposure to nature, but books weight a lot and take up a lot of space. Unlike files, which can be easily placed into filing cabinets and put away, books take up a lot more space and often require entire walls to house them. Think of all of the space that you could save by digitizing your library.

Our scanners are designed for nondestructive bound book scanning of any type or size. The books are scanned, archived, and then easily retrievable from any device. Some of the types of books that we have scanned in the past include:

  • Laboratory notebooks
  • Manuals
  • Magazines
  • Newspaper
  • Engineering books
  • Yearbooks
  • Vital records
  • Research notebooks
  • Ledger books
  • and more
