Acquisition and Implementation of a New Overhead Book Scanner for Document Delivery Use

The Lewis Library staff of the University of North Texas Health Science Center proposes to purchase and install a Konica Minolta PS5000C overhead book scanner. This equipment will replace a scanner that has been in continual use since June 1999. In addition to high-quality text scanning in black and white, the PS5000C will give us to ability to produce high-resolution color images when required for charts and biomedical images. The new scanner also will enable us to upgrade to the current version of the Ariel software for interlibrary loan; the existing scanner would require a costly hardware upgrade to be compatible. An award of $5,000 is requested, which will fund approximately 40-50% of the costs for equipment, shipping, installation, and training. The remainder will come from the Library?s budget
