A news release:
The Berkley Public Library now has a self-serve scanner available for public use. The scanner can accept single pages and is specially designed to accommodate the scanning of books.
Scanned images can be easily manipulated using the touch-screen monitor. Software on the machine gives options for modifying the images as well. Images can be sent to an email address or saved to a flash drive for easy portability in a variety of file formats.
The cost per session to use the scanner is $1 for Berkley residents and $2 for non-residents.
“Having a scanner available for public use will be a benefit to our customers. I think people will be impressed with it,” said Matt Church, Library Director.
Image Access, Inc. gave away a total of 11 book scanning systems at American Library Association Conference this summer to libraries around the nation and Berkley was fortunate to win one of the machines. Image Access’ KIC systems are a popular self-serve book scanning solution.
The Berkley Public Library is located at 3155 Coolidge Highway in Berkley. For additional information, call 248-658-3440 or visit www.berkley.lib.mi.us.
