Jim Shelton, a retired electrical engineer, acquired the book2net Spirit book scanner to scan and document his rare collection of historical electricity items dating back to the mid 1800s. For Jim, the secure and precise documentation of his collection is important so that it can be easily assimilated in the future by institutions that may be interested in its acquisition.
“For some time I was in search of a software to document my collection,” explains Jim Shelton. “It was my wife who eventually suggested that we pay a visit to the Library of Congress and it was here that I found Ristech’s book2net Spirit scanner. I met with an archivist at the library who spent six hours with me discussing my project. I was then introduced to the book2net Spirit and had a chance to speak with Julie Galardo from Ristech Company. It wasn’t long before I placed my order with her right over the phone.”
Although the book2net Spirit is most often used in institutional and library environments, Jim Shelton is a perfect example of the machine’s capabilities on a more personal level. The book2net Spirit is an entry-level, high-resolution document and object scanner which produces digital images to be saved on a computer or storage device. Among the most highly acclaimed features of the book2net Spirit are its ease of use, elimination of unnecessary waste, reduced energy consumption and most importantly, the fact that it is gentle on all books, documents and objects scanned. This last feature is critical for those who find themselves scanning old and fragile items, such as Jim Shelton.
“I am very pleased with my purchase of the book2net Spirit and also with the high level of service I received from Julie and the team at Ristech Company,” claims Jim Shelton. “This scanner is exactly what I was looking for to document the collection I’ve worked so hard to accumulate over all these years. The book2net Spirit allows me to scan in large formats quickly and easily and doesn’t force me to crush my items as I scan – as is typically the case with mainstream retail scanners.”
A special software by the name of Tocosa can be purchased along with the book2net Spirit. Tocosa allows for more scanning options, multiple formats, lightening, darkening and many more features. As our world becomes increasingly digital, the book2net Spirit seems to fit the mold quite nicely as a revolutionary document scanner for both institutions and individuals.
