5 Benefits of Large Format Book Scanning Services
Large Format Book Scanning Services in San Francisco Bay Area, California
Books come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from mass-market paperbacks to log books, map books, university textbooks and much, much more. They provide the means to store and share information with readers almost indefinitely, but books are sadly not indestructible.
Age, accident, fire, spills and other issues can damage paper books, rendering them useless. Preserving that information is vital, and large format book scanning offers the means to transform expansive books into something new – a digital format that can be protected and preserved forever. Whether you have a collection of antique map books that needs to be protected, unique periodicals from a bygone age, or a valuable collection of historical books, large format book scanning service offers a number of benefits.
1. Digitize the Contents
Perhaps the most important advantage offered by large format book scanning is the ability to digitize the contents of those books. This transforms information from print to digital imagery, which can be stored on CDs and DVDs, the cloud, or saved to a computer’s hard drive.
2. Easily Share
Another benefit found with large format book scanning is that you can easily share the contents of your books with anyone, anywhere, at any time. All they need is a digital device, and today, that means something as simple as a smartphone could be used. You can email files, share links from cloud storage solutions like Dropbox or Google Drive and more. This reduces time, cost and hassle.
3. Preserve Important Information
If your books contain rare information, or unique data, it must be protected. Book format is not the best way to do that, even with archival quality ink and paper. Large format book scanning ensures that your vital information is protected and preserved for posterity, in a format that can never be destroyed (digital copies can be saved literally forever with no degradation, particularly if stored in the cloud).
4. Maintain Quality
Older scanning technology was capable of creating copies of images, maps and printed pages, but often the quality was lower than the original. For instance, a copy machine can create a duplicate of a page, but the quality is less than ideal. With high-quality book scanners, you can create identical copies of images and pages, and then save them as PDFs, JPG files, TFF files and more.
5. Reduced Costs
Printing large books is expensive, and for businesses that regularly issue updated volumes or new material, this can be very costly. Add to that the cost of shipping books to customers or clients, and you have a serious drain on your budget. Large format book scanning ensures that you’re able to scan and send whatever you need at no cost (emailing a file or sharing a link costs you nothing, and even cloud storage is inexpensive).
These are just a few of the many benefits of large format book scanning. Of course, you must choose the right partner. If you would like to receive a free quote for book scanning services or large format book scanning services? Call +1.855.722.6669 or eMail us at info@eRecordsUSA.com.

eRecordsUSA, yearbook scanning service is great. Many of my classmates either had not purchased their Senior yearbook or had lost it.
