Microfilm Scanner Barbara Pope 21 Mar 2011 15:21 UTC

Hello, everyone.  This is our Spring Break week and it feels great to be
able to get a little bit of a break.

I have been requested by my dean to find out if there are microfilm
scanners that are capable of scanning entire newspaper pages all at
once.  We currently have a microfilm scanners that will scan a regular
size magazine or journal page.  It has a zoom feature that will allow us
to fit a little more on a scanned page, but not much.  A few patrons
have requested a scanner that can do larger pages.  My question for you
is do you know of any microfilm scanners that can do this?  What vendor
did you use to obtain the machine and what was the cost?  A url for a
website listing pricing and specs of the machine would be very helpful.

Please no contacts from vendors.

Thank you.
