Bohemia, NY (Vocus) April 10, 2009
What would happen if the myriad of information at your library was suddenly lost due to some unforeseen catastrophe? Penny Imaging Exchange, understanding the ever growing need for the preservation of historical books, microfilmed records and delicate library materials, is in the forefront of digital imaging for archiving and access, using new state-of-the-art digital imaging technology.
Digitizing records has become a hot topic of late. A digitized record is easily searchable, easily viewed with zoom options, and is easily stored. Environmental factors may cause irreversible damage to aging books, historical documents and film collections if left unchecked. Factors such as molding, fading, and page crumbling may compromise the life and integrity of library books. As well, lack of storage space can be detrimental to a library's investments.
Digitizing addresses these issues and also opens opportunities for better record workflow and management, sharing of information as well as the preservation of archival documents.
The technology of capturing documents has changed and requires specialized technicians who are versed with using such equipment. New megapixel cameras are quite expensive but are more often being used instead of line scanners to capture the clearest archival images possible; and unlike conventional scanners, there is no need to flatten and put undue stress on delicate bindings.
Because of this new trend in the industry, Penny Imaging Exchange has gone to great lengths to invest in this brand new technology for the benefit of conversion houses and other resellers, who in close accord, will work with the libraries to define the project specifications to digitize and archive documents and assist in the preservation of valuable library assets.
