Here’s an illustration of some of the benefits of our new Bookeye scanner and BSCAN software. With this software ILL staff will now be able to scan two very large pages at one time–with the BSCAN splitting them into two distinct, reasonably sized images. The program automatically corrects errors, smoothes the curvature of the book, straightens crooked pages, and even removes fingers from the image. With the addition of cover sheet recognition, automatic updating and color imaging, this new setup will streamline the ILL scanning process and permit readers to read more easily.
