Thread Name: Tech- Scan multiple pages to one file?
Subject: RE: Tech- Scan multiple pages to one file?
We have librarians who are expert at taking apart books (cutting off the binding and cutting the signatures apart), feeding them through scanners to get the entire book in just a few minutes, then compile it into a single PDF file. I'm sure the librarians here aren't alone in this skill. I would check with your librarians in the area if you want to do this. Our machine isn't that high end - it's an office model, yes, but I don't think it cost thousands. Probably hundreds.

Once the book is scanned, it is sent out to a binder and rebound (perfect binding this time) and it's ready for the stacks.
