Digitization/Scanning/Ebook Project Begins Nov 2004 Nov, 2004. Logos, well known publisher of electronic/digital books and developer of Logos/Libronix bible study software, is now scanning public domain books from the Turpin Library collection. The scanning crew is using the very sophisticated robotic Kirtas scanner. Only books published before 1923 are being scanned because we can be certain the copyright has expired on these materials. Logos may scan as many as 15,000 volumes(?) at Turpin Library, then move to another library. Expect to see publication information at the Logos website in about a year. Announcement posted 10/27/2004

It was already happening eight years ago.

Wow, that is incredible. I wonder what a machine like that would cost.

From what I have read, Logos is using the APT Bookscan 1200 system that scans 1200 pages per hour:

The BFS-Auto High Speed Scanner system in the video I posted can scan over 250 pages per minute or 15,000 pages per hour.

That is over 10X faster!!!
