Large Antique Book Scanning Service Preserves Information and Saves Your Books
Large Antique Book Scanning Services in San Francisco Bay Area, California
Whether you have a single antique book or an entire historical collection of rare volumes, it’s important that you protect them. Time is the enemy of the printed page, but your antique books can also be damaged through other means. Too much handling, or incorrect handling, can be devastating. Spills, fire, and flood damage – all of these can destroy those books. Large antique book scanning services gives you the means to protect both the information in your books, as well as the volumes themselves. What should you know?
Book scanning is a relatively new technology that allows you to take the information contained in your book and digitize it. This gives you a digital copy that can be duplicated any number of times, and won’t be susceptible to damage in any form. It can be shared with others, posted online, emailed, even printed out if you really want to do so.
Of course, there are a couple of types of book scanning. Destructive scanning is the most common, but it’s not right for rare or antique books because the process actually destroys the book. The binding is cut and removed, and the pages are trimmed so they can be scanned easily. This will work fine for a book where the information inside is the most valuable, but not for books that have inherent value in their own right.
Non-destructive book scanning service is the better choice here. In this process, the binding and pages are protected, while the pages are accurately scanned and digitized. The book is then returned to you in the same condition as it was originally, and you have a digital copy that can be used for other means.
Why Protect the Information?
For some collectors, the book itself is the most important thing. The information contained within it is a secondary consideration. However, there may be many people who would love to read that information, from other family members to researchers and students. With large antique book scanning, you can take the information out of the book and share it with as many people as you like, while the book itself stays safe and sound in your collection. You’re able to enrich the world without putting your prized book in any danger at all.
Not All Scanning Companies Can Help
While there are various companies that offer book scanning services, they’re not all created equal. You need to choose your service provider with care. How much experience do they have handling rare, antique books? Are they able to scan large books, or are they limited to conventional sizes? Do they offer full color photo and illustration reproduction as well, or is their service text only?

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.
