Large-Format, Bound Book and Newspaper Scanning
Bound books. Oversize documents. Bound and loose newspapers. Maps. Engineering drawings. No matter the size or binding, Crowley Imaging has long been an industry leader in large-format scanning services, scanning everything from incunabula (printed materials pre-dating 1501) to deed books to original manuscripts to Presidential papers. Using only equipment of the highest technology and practicing the most careful document handling procedures, Crowley Imaging partners with clients to preserve historic, corporate and culturally significant collections through proven large-format scanning procedures.
- With its Frederick service bureau as the largest known book scanning facility in the United States, Crowley Imaging is primarily outfitted with Zeutschel brand book scanners
- Zeutschel-engineered scanners, in use by the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration among many other prestigious institutions worldwide, allow for imaging of the smallest bound book to oversize books and newspapers with an open dimension of up to 33” x 47”. Large format scanners facilitate the processing of these needs. Responsive book cradles ensure that bindings are protected as the cradle gives way to the weight of the binding.
- The distinctive ability to deliver oversize book scanning services also provides Crowley Imaging the avenue to easily digitize bound and loose newspapers, engineering drawings, maps, deed books and other large-format material that might require overhead scanning to either protect or capture
- Crowley scan operators are trained in material handling and preservation techniques, ensuring that each valuable collection is returned in the same condition in which it was received
- Low staff turnover assures that client material receives the best care – and the most experience – available
- Project management staff communicates with each customer to ensure a thorough understanding of the existing condition of the collection in order to create a solution that will deliver a quality product in a timely fashion at a competitive price.
