Please join us on June 18 to tour the FEDLINK Federal Scanning Center and learn about new service options.

 

Housed at the Library of Congress, the scanning center is open to all FEDLINK members.  FedScan offers digitization of library materials with high quality output (images, metadata and other derivatives), quick turnaround and long-term preservation.

 

New features:

·         Recently introduced output formats include EPUB and MOBI, to support users with portable reading devices and Daisy audio output for users who have difficulty reading.  Full retrospective conversion of all existing online titles has been completed.

·         FedScan now handles larger formats and non-bound materials.

·         Ancillary services include special handling such as redaction.

 

The FedScan center session will feature a demonstration of the service, Q & A session, and a tour of the facilities. For more information about FedScan, see the FAQ at http://www.loc.gov/flicc/contracts/pdfs/IAFAQ-200910.pdf.
