Special Collections Research Center offers self-serve digitization

The Bookeye 4 scanner is easy for researchers to use.
The Special Collections Research Center Breckinridge Research Room now offers self-serve digitization via a new Bookeye 4 scanner. The easy-to-use touch screen interface allows researchers to produce high-quality color scans up to 600 dpi. Files can be transferred via email, cloud storage, or an external USB drive. 

The scanner includes a “V” cradle option that provides additional support for tightly bound materials and reduces the risk of damage to the spine during digitization. Regardless of whether material is scanned by researchers or by the SCRC reference team on request, the Bookeye significantly expands access to UK Libraries’ unique collections.
