Scan Project Underway

by @ 8:12 am. Filed under Registry Ops

Last week ACS loaded a new book-scanning program onto three of our computers. The program is easy to use and very efficient. The operator only needs to provide the book number and the program assigns page numbers as the images are scanned. We set up two high-speed scanners and one smaller one to work the project. The high-speed ones can gobble up forty pages at a time. Last Friday I timed a high-speed scanner. It took only ten minutes to scan a 350 page book. This is from the time the book was placed in the scanner to completion. Of course, this was under ideal conditions. We plan to fix our record book imaging problems using this new program. There is still one more step before these “new” images are made available to the public. ACS needs to move the images from an internal folder to the main database. This will make the images available both in house and on the Internet. That won’t take long.
