Complete Interlibrary Loan Scanning

and Image Treatment Workflow System

... better image quality, fewer errors, and easier operation

In the early days of digital interlibrary loan and digital document delivery, the available software was simple and image quality expectations of requestors were low. Times have changed. The demand for faster workflow delivery and perfect, printer-ready images has made the current software environment complex, creating significant challenges in training new employees. BSCAN ILL simplifies existing processes and produces perfect, printer-ready images.

BSCAN ILL starts by eliminating the need to manually enter requestor information. BSCAN ILL automatically reads the information that is required by interlibrary loan document de-

livery software from scanned pull slips, not only saving time but also eliminating human error.

Articles are scanned using one of a family of high speed face-up scanners: Click Mini, Click, and Bookeye 4 V3, V2 & V1. By eliminating the constant book flipping required by flatbed scanners, these face-up scanners are three to five times faster than the fastest face-down scanners, and they do not cause book spine damage. For low volume ILL operations, BSCAN ILL also runs BookEdge flatbed scanners, employing their book edge feature and a faster mode that scans two pages at a time.

Once articles are scanned, BSCAN ILL's powerful image treatment capabilities automatically eliminate skew and remove unwanted black borders, fan and gutter.

Finally, BSCAN ILL automatically sends requests through ILLiad/Odyssey, Ariel, RAPID, Clio, Article Exchange, Relais, FTP, and e-mail and can notifiy ILLiad/Odyssey in each case, all without any need for further human intervention. Resending articles is also a snap.

...add Digital Document Delivery

services for as little as $2,000 per year, would you?

...cut your ILL scanning time in half for less than $2,000 per

year, and in half again for $500 more, would you?

...simplify your digitization process, reduce worker training

time, produce clean, straight print-ready images every

time for $2,000 per year, would you?

you could do all this plus eliminate
keying the requestor info, automatically deliver
articles, resend requests days later if a delivery
failure occurs, and operate seamlessly with all
other ILL software and systems (e.g. Article
Exchange, ILLiad/Odyssey, Clio, Relais, Ariel,

FTP & email)?

BSCAN ILL
Dramatically Improves ILL Digitization

A fundamental tenet that has always bound the academic research community together is open sharing of newfound knowledge. Today, this open sharing is going on at a feverish pace and digital interlibrary loan services are an essential vehicle. Scholars from all fields are becoming increasingly dependent on their ability to acquire journal articles in just one day.

In the early 1990s, the pioneers of interlibrary loan digitization had no choice but to adapt commercial scanning equipment to meet their needs. Ariel was the only available document delivery software and there were no scanners made specifically for scanning books, journals and maps. Over time, that changed. Planetary scanners became available in the late 1990s. The first release of BSCAN ILL automatically read (using OCR) the requestor information from pull slips without manual keying, supported rapid scanning and image cleanup, and automatically posted to Ariel with the press of a single button. Since then, ILLiad, Odyssey, Ariel, RAPID, Clio and Article Exchange have been integrated into BSCAN ILL with the same hands-off automation. BSCAN ILL has a host of valuable features, many of which are not available with any other system.

In addition to allowing review of electronic articles and resource sharing to reduce per article scanning costs (e.g. for archival, electronic course materials creation, scanning projects), only BSCAN ILL offers you:

One easy user interface, integrated seamlessly with Article Exchange, ILLiad/Odyssey, RAPID, Relais, Ariel, Clio, FTP & Email
- reduces training time significantly

Optimized for the latest technology in face-up scanners, including all Bookeye models, Click, Click Mini, and face-down scanners such as BookEdge and WideTEK 25

Automatically reading of requestor information from pull slips

Automatically sending without intervention by the scan operator

Central management with central, portable and remote scanning

Automatic hold of all scanned articles for up to 30 days for fast
correcting and easy resending

Three Things You Should Know About ILL Digitization Equipment

SPEED

All of the systems that DLSG bundles with
BSCAN ILL are quite fast, but our face up
scanners are the fastest. By eliminating
the need to flip the volume repeatedly, our
face-up scanners are up to 5 times faster
than the fastest face-down scanners.

SUPPORT & SERVICES

Digitization for ILL and digital document de- livery are production processes. It is impor- tant that they be backed by a reliable vendor team, and Image Access has an unmatched service and support record.

CAPTURING CONTENT DEEP INTO THE BOOK FOLD

Never Fail an Article Request Again

Bookeye Method

Bookeyes follow the
natural curve of the book
when they scan. Good
lighting is essential for
good scanning, and
Bookeye 4 scanners em-
ploy two white LED light
bars that sweep across
the material.

Click Method

Click captures the left and
right pages with two separate
cameras positioned at ideal
angles.
An array of 420 individu-
ally aimed white LED lights
produce bright, evenly distrib-
uted illumination from above
and behind the scan bed,
thus avoiding reflection.

BookEdge Method

The BookEdge is a
flatbed scanner with a
specialized feature that
easily captures close
into the bookfold
without damaging
the spine.

BSCAN ILL Capture Workflow

Improves Quality & Performance, Reduces Errors and Simplifies

Identify Article & Requestor

BSCAN ILL automatically captures data directly from
pull slips - less keying means fewer keying errors.

BSCAN ILL reads the requestor's name, the delivery
method, and IP address from the pull slip and uses

this information to automatically route the electronic
document to the appropriate document delivery
software. After the article is sent, BSCAN ILL updates
your document delivery software automatically. No
extra keystrokes are necessary.

Scan Article

Scan two pages at
a time, using the
keyboard to delete
unwanted pages. An
optional foot pedal
is available for even
faster scanning. Once
scanned, the article is
passed to the auto-
matic image treatment
stage.

ILL-05

Automatic Image Treatment

BSCAN ILL automatically locates the content on each
page, clips the content, creates a preset margin for
consistency, and deskews and corrects curvature
when necessary. When completed, the treated article
images are passed on to the manual review stage.

Manual Review & Correction

This stage can be run after each article is scanned, or
for greater efficiency, several articles can be scanned
in sequence, automatically treated, queued up in this
stage and reviewed at one time.

Send & Route

Each article is automatically sent via the
delivery method specified. If an ILL de-
partment is using ILLiad and Odyssey to
track completion and perform billing-relat-
ed operations, BSCAN ILL can be config-
ured to notify Odyssey that the article was
sent even if it wasn't sent by Odyssey.

Resend

BSCAN ILL is capable of storing

articles for a configurable number of

days after they're sent. If an article must be

resent, it can be opened and sent right away or be

edited first, for example by adding or deleting pages.

BookEdge

Using the book edge to scan 1 page at a time

Commercial Copiers
and Scanners

Face up scanners minimize book jockeying. Fast face-up

scanners like those offered by DLSG with BSCAN ILL are 3-5 times faster than the fastest face-down scanners and photo- copiers. And unlike face-down scanners and copiers, DLSG scanners are designed to capture deep into the book fold, flat- ten book curve, split images into two pages and remove fan and gutter.

BookEdge is uniquely designed for scanning books and is

the fastest face-down scanner in its price range. When used in book mode (one page at a time), this scanner flattens the page and captures deep into the fold of tightly bound journals. With BSCAN ILL, the BookEdge can also be used to scan 2 pages at a time, which is substantially faster than book mode. BSCAN ILL splits & flattens the pages, and eliminates fan, gutter & skew.

Older technologies like photocopiers and face-down scan-

ners are concomitant with limitations that typically include:

  • Difficulty Capturing Content in the Book Fold
  • Significant Stress to Book Spines
  • Limit to 11x17 inch Scan Area
  • Black & White Paper Copies instead of Full-Color, Digital Copies
  • Unsightly Skew, Fan, Gutter, & Black Borders
  • Significantly Higher Cost of Operation

ILL-07

Resource Sharing

Share with Archivist & Digital Course Materials Creation

The exceptional image quality produced by Bookeye and WideTEK scanners affords opportunities for resource shar- ing with Archivists as well as use for projects and creat-
ing digital course materials. Reduce your cost per article scanned by sharing equipment costs and helping other departments to switch to digital format and get color content without the additional cost of color copiers or color micro- filming.

Use some digitization projects funding
to purchase the Bookeye
4 V1, V2 or V3 and dramatically
reduce ILL's share of the cost
of state-of-the-art scanning
equipment. A complementary schedule
is usually easy to agree upon. Note that while the
Bookeye 4 V2's standard image quality (high quality
400dpi) meets and exceeds digitization standards, a
600dpi option can be purchased later, if desired.

BSCAN ILL automatically locates the content and sets consistent margins,
removes fan, gutter and black edges - and even deskews the image.

Avoid the poor results that
photocopiers & microfilming
too often produce.

The Amazing Image Quality of the Bookeye 4 V2 600dpi Option

With its 600dpi option, Bookeye 4 V2 produces the highest quality A2 size (17x25'') images of any face-up scanner today

To capture moving objects, digital cameras must use array CCDs, which capture all parts of the object at the same instant. Afford-
able digital cameras have 50 megapixels or less. And those pixels must be further divided into red, green and blue sub-pixels, which can reduce the clarity of color images by 40%.

Since books don't move while being scanned, Bookeyes employ linear CCD technology to produce ultra-clear images with astounding 140 megapixels. Each pixel in a linear CCD includes full red, green and blue sub-pixels.

Scanners use linear CCDs. The sweep-
ing action of scanners allow them to
capture the precise amount of red, blue
and green for each pixel.

Bookeye 4 scanners utilize a unique state-of-the-art rotating mirror system that dramatically reduces clarity loss at the corners of the image due to the limitations of lens systems. Bookeyes can also scan in V-mode or flat-mode, and they scan from left to right, allowing them to follow the curves of the book.

digital cameras to capture color images

Company History

Our experience in digitization of printed materials dates back to 1988 prior to its founding
in 1993, when Image Access began providing digitization workflow solutions to commercial
markets. Having developed its own book and wide format scanners as well as its own OCR,
barcode reading and image treatment algorithms and a powerful workflow system, Image Access
is well-equipped to meet both general and specialized digitization needs.

Image Access has a long history of leadership in digital technology. Image Access created Scan2Net®,
the first Ethernet/HTML based scanner interface, the first self-serve book scanner kiosk, the first and
only ILL scan, clean-up and delivery workflow system, the first affordable preservation quality large
format planetary scanner, the first affordable duplex newspaper scanner, the first and only book scanner
with both flat and v-modes, the first and only complete digitization workflow system, and more. We also
have the most extensive and prestigious customer list for book scanners in the United States and many
countries abroad.

Image Access created the Digital Library Systems Group (DLSG) in 2004 to focus on the special needs
of academic, research and public libraries. And just as Bookeye quickly became the leading book
scanner, DLSG quickly became the leading supplier of hybrid library products in America, helping the
most prestigious libraries across America become Digital Age Libraries.

Image Access has, by far, the largest selection of self-serve book scanners (KIC), the only complete
turnkey digitization workflow system for creating digital assets and archiving (Opus), and the only
complete Interlibrary loan scanning and image treatment workflow system (BSCAN ILL). Image
Access handily succeeds at its ongoing mission of providing the best image quality, the most
specialized software and the broadest line of digitization products from which a library,
archive or museum can choose.

........ KIC makes my research so much more accessible! Thank ya! - Duke University
