Have personal books, scrapbooks or over-sized images you'd like to preserve digitally? Or does your research require tedious copying of selections of books and citations that you could scan more efficiently? Then let us introduce you to your new best friend: the Indus Book Scanner 9000. Learn how to use the overhead book scanner to get the optimum digital image. Attendees will have an opportunity to scan their own materials as well. Bring your flash drive or have your email address ready so you can take your images home with you. In the Heritage Room.
