At the NAGARA-CoSA conference, Ristech will demonstrate the book2net Spirit, the first entry-level high-resolution book scanner designed for fast and simple public use in archives, libraries, museums and other institutions and organizations. The exhibit runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on July 14.
“Archivists know how important it is to take the best possible care of documents, which is why the Book2net book scanners are so popular among those who deal with precious, delicate and historical materials. Our scanners are very gentle on books and fragile documents, not to mention that they save time, money and energy for organizations of all sizes,” said Robb Richardson, president, Book2net, North American Operations.
The theme of this year’s NAGARA-CoSA meeting is Sweet Harmony & Solid Gold, with archiving sessions and exhibitions “worth their weight in gold.” The annual meeting takes place at the downtown Nashville Sheraton Hotel.
