Saving History One Page at a Time with Historic Book Scanning Services
Historic Book Scanning Services in San Francisco Bay Area, California
One of the challenges of running a library, academic research facility, or public book collection of any sort, is protecting historical documents while also providing the public with access to them. Precious books and other materials that may be fragile or extremely rare should be protected, but sharing information is the entire point of the item in the first place. In order to balance these two needs, many libraries and facilities are turning to historic books scanning services. These services scan historic documents and turn them into digital files that can be shared and accessed by patrons instead of the source material itself.
These services provide an easy way to make information accessible to all patrons, while keeping precious materials in safe, controlled collections. Historic documents, special editions or collections, handwritten items, and more, can all be kept in a preserved state behind glass or another storage location. Meanwhile, patrons can access the digital version from anywhere, read it at any time, and never have to worry about returning the item. Librarians don’t have to be concerned with damage, and the material becomes instantly searchable, tag-able, and more useful.
With historic book scanning services, the process takes into consideration the delicacy of the documents, utilizing equipment and careful car so that the material isn’t harmed during the scanning itself. Historic documents aren’t just those from previous centuries or ancient times, either. Librarians suggest that materials published as recently as the late 1920s are very vulnerable to decay or damage, and should be digitized for regular use. This number will only become more and more recent as time goes on. Through historic book scanning services, we’ll be able to access information from centuries back, and still preserve the source document for generations to come.

I wanted to create electronic copies of 25 old high school yearbooks. Between my brothers and sisters, we had hard copies of yearbooks covering the years 1946 – 1970 (from when my oldest brother started kindergarten to when my youngest brother graduated from high school). Electronic copies (PDF) allows for easy distribution among family and friends and long-term preservation of the content. eR...

eRecordsUSA, yearbook scanning service is great. Many of my classmates either had not purchased their Senior yearbook or had lost it. I was able to reproduce it on CD for my 40 year High School reunion. All that received a copy were very thrilled and so grateful. I do recommend eRecordsUsa and their yearbook scanning service.
The digitizing of sixty-four years of back issues of our journal Military Collector & Historian by eRecords was superbly done and exceeded our expectations. I recommend them highly.

Our company had about 5,000 pages of historical sales records that existed only in hard copy. We need to have these records scanned and imported into excel where they could be filtered, sorted, and subtotaled. eRecordsUsa did this for us in a fast, economical, accurate, and professional manner. I highly recommend them.

I am a happy repeat customer for over 3 years now! eRecordsUSA scanned all my course readers so I could go to class with my ipad instead of a heavy backpack full of paper.
