open book scanner

Goal: build a cheap diy bookscanner based on existing open designs.

Although a lot of books are already available in digitized form on the internet, much more is still missing. Especially all the texts that are not “middle of the (Google-)road”, and there is a huge gap for Dutch texts as well.

If we want to change this, we need good quality bookscanners.


Happily there are quite a few diy bookscanners available these days.

see for instance: diybookscanner.org

We are going to build one ourselves in the days preceding the conference.
