Scanning Unbound Documents

Author(s): Lisa Goddard

Year: 2018


This handout, "Scanning Unbound Documents," is a part of the Improving African Futures Using Lessons from the Past (IAfF) Digital Resource Guides. Although it is possible to scan printed documents on a photo scanner, it is more convenient to purchase a document scanner if you are going to do a lot of this kind of material. A document scanner is optimized for scanning documents quickly, and it comes with optical character recognition software that can turn an image into editable text. This guide leads you through the steps to produce digital copies of reports, documents, or other unbound materials.
