George Washington U. Experiments With Robotic Book Digitization

Wired Campus – “Centuries ago, the best way to reproduce a book was to have a monk in a monastery sit down and rewrite the original, word for word. These days, digitizing one of those ancient texts can seem almost as laborious: It can take hours upon hours of human work to scan just one volume. So George Washington University is now trying to figure out if an automated digitization system will take less time, and cost less per page, than a manual one.”
