What is Book Scanning?
With book scanning, a scanner is used to convert your books into various file formats. Depending on the format you choose, the files may be simply readable, or they can also be searchable. Once scanned and converted, your books are stored on digital media or online.
Why Should I Have My Books Scanned?
There are two very good reasons to have your books scanned. First, it’s a means of backing up valuable information that you may wish to retrieve and use over and over – that’s why schools and universities are increasingly turning to digital storage for texts, journals, theses, etc. that their students use over and over. When your books are scanned, there’s never any danger of loss or damage, and the files can be used over and over by multiple users.
Second, if space is at a premium, you can store literally thousands of books digitally on a set of disks or online that would otherwise take up a good deal of square footage. That’s why scanning is desirable even for private citizens who may have small libraries that they want to preserve, while freeing up space in their homes for other purposes.
Can Any Book Be Scanned?
Legally, yes, provided that you are not duplicating copyrighted material for re-sale. And physically, the answer is also yes. eRecordsUsa can scan even very large books, and we’re also experienced in handling delicate, collectible books. Often, we are able to handle books that other businesses are unable or unwilling to scan.
Can I Have My Books Back?
If you want your books returned to you, we can scan it using the non-destructive method (see the Services tab for more information).

My wife authored a book published in 1999. The The book is out of print and there are still brisk sales of used copies so she decided to publish on Kindle. eRecordsUSA in Dublin California scanned a perfect copy of the book ready for publication, no flaws to fix we were on Amazon\'s page within two hours. I highly recommend eRecordsUSA. They do it right the first time.

eRecordsUsa recently scanned 4 valuable 9x12 highly classified lab notebooks for Cloud9. The quality of the scans were amazing considering that the notes were written by hand and drawn in pencil 8 to 10 years ago. It is much easier now to read the scanned documents then the originals. Special care was also taken to replace and dismantle the original bindings and stapled on papers with the lab notebooks returned to us in perfect condition. I recommend eRecordsUsa services for quality of work, fas...

As a member of the Sequoia Audubon Society of San Mateo County, we asked eRecords USA to scan old newsletters into PDF searchable files. They successfully scanned 2,853 pages representing 421 files. The newsletters were scanned in B&W at 400 dpi. Prior to beginning the project, eRecords USA provided us with a written estimate. They initially estimated the project to take 4-6 weeks but the project was completed in just 2 weeks. During my initial meeting with eRecords USA, Sharma took the time to ...

I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of service I received from eRecordsUSA . I had a bound volume of my grandfather\'s memoirs in handwritten Yiddish that had to be scanned. The pages were non-standard size and each page had been written in a different intensity of ink, so the pages had to be individually scanned.eRecordsUSA met with me in person, immediately understood my needs - and my concerns - and turned the project around in record time and on a highly professional level, exceedin...

I had three, thick books scanned by these folks and was impressed with the attentive customer service, the turn-around time, the quality and the price was extremely competitive! I had scanned three textbooks my father wrote and were out of print by the publisher and thought it would be nice to preserve his works electronically for other generations of food scientists to use. Highly recommend them for any of your scanning needs and definitely recommend them to anyone with scanning needs
I must commend the services of eRecordsUSA.com for the superior scanning job they did for me. My job was to scan 16 huge binders of photos and documents for a theater. This was an unusual scanning request which required a lot of individual attention to each item that was scanned, and the order of the items was important to be preserved. I was very satisfied with the job that was delivered and the turnaround of the job. Not only was the final scanning of excellent quality, but the return...

Our experience with eRecordsUSA was an absolute pleasure. They were very professional in their treatment of our family historical journals. Prior to scanning, they went the extra mile in showing us their processes and provided samples for our review. They worked with us through iterations in resolution requirements and treatment of the historical documents. They delivered on time within the quality standards that we set. We are very pleased with the results and look forward to engaging with...
