Book Partners, in combination with Digital Conversion Solutions, another division of The HF Group, produces accurate, archival-quality digital images from bound materials and loose pages, including large format items.
Our commitment to this technology is reflected by our investment in the Kirtas’ APT Bookscan 1200™ automated bound document digitization systems which are housed at our Greensboro, NC, and North Manchester, IN, facilities. This system consistently creates high resolution images from bound volumes. Our equipment digitizes bound volumes in black & white, grayscale and color in sizes ranging from 4.5” x 7” to 14” tall x 11.5” wide. Loose sheets and foldout can be digitized up to 60” x 40”. We can also digitize bound volumes up to 40” x 40” on a specialty basis.
Book Partners offers services to accommodate the digitization of the following:
Binders and Files
Books and Journals
Large Format Items (maps, graphs, charts)
Microfiche and Microfilm
Scan on Demand (in conjunction with storing and retrieving your documents)
We apply numerous image processing techniques to ensure the resulting images are suitable for their intended use. Varieties of quality level options are available and can be selected by our clients to improve the overall end-user’s experience when accessing the content that has been digitized. Our experts can accommodate a multitude of use cases including content that will be accessed for research, preservation, web presentment, and/or slated into a print on demand program.
Some of the options that you can choose when you have your items digitized include:
Print and Bind On Demand Copies through Book Partners
Working Reprints for heavy use
Reprints to Sell at Your Book Store
Reprints to use as Donor Gifts
