University Libraries Featured in Digital Scanner’s Customer Profile

Recently, the University Libraries were featured by Atiz Innovations, Inc., a scanning equipment manufacturer, in a profile of some of its customers,

The profile was about the company’s BookDrive DIY Scanner. This unit is one of the significant pieces of equipment used in the University Libraries’ Digitization Center that helps advance the creation of Ball State-produced digital content. The unit is like a double copy stand with two digital cameras set at 90 degree angles so that a book can be photographed in a cradle position rather than laid flat to protect the book’s spine. The unit produces a high quality digital image and minimizes damage to fragile pages.
