The Book2Net scanner has been moved next to the Technical Assistance desk in the South Commons for the remainder of its trial. If you haven’t tried it yet, you really should! It’s an easy to use machine that allows you to scan images or text and save them as a jpeg on your USB.
If you need assistance ask the Navigator. Don’t forget to leave some feedback, either right here or by filling in a comment card available at the desk. We are very interested in hearing your thoughts and suggestions.

It is a really fast scanner with good quality (a lot faster than traditional scanner). The text is scanned to .JPG file which is clear after magnified many times.
The size of the file is as big as a picture taken by a camera, however, after processed with Adobe Acrobat Professional it is very slim.

I liked using the scanner, it was fast and high-quality, but I would like to know if there is any easy way to take this jpeg files – which are all single images – and string them together to make a .pdf file of several pages long.

Thanks for the feedback, it is always valuable. The most common feedback we have received is regarding the lack of advanced features. The supplier informs us they are working on incorporating a more advanced “expert mode”. PDF’s can be created using Acrobat Pro (on the multimedia machines in the South Commons), or using Primo PDF (installed on every machine in the Learning Commons). Primo PDF can also be installed on your home machine. http://www.primopdf.com/

I LOVE this thing! Super easy and fast, not to mention saves paper and money. Very big fan.
It is a super fast scanner. A lot, faster than a copy machine. I will enjoy scanning my document into electronic format to save time and space in my room.

I tried the scanner for the first time a few days ago to a map, rather than a book and was VERY pleased with the results! The quality was good and I later put the scanned sections of the map together to make a PDF of the complete document. It was a simple, quick and intuitive machine to use. Wicked 🙂
