What is non-destructive book scanning?
Non-destructive book scanning is the digitization process of protecting the physical documents & converting them into ebook format, CD, and MP3.. The process of preservation involves book scanning and converting it into digital file format without removing the back of the spine or destroying it. It is accomplished with the help of special robotic & flatbed book scanners. The original book is resumed as it is.

Scanning Books to PDF and Other File Formats
After scanning the books using a special scanning machine, the soft copies are created in different types of file formats and finally, a PDF copy of the book is created. PDF/A and standard PDF format are used with OCR (Optical Character Recognition). This format is termed eBooks. They are the exact copy of the original book and you can search anything as per the index of the book and the access is fast.
The other file formats we can offer are Word documents or even Excel files. These formats we only obtain through the OCR process. There is no other way for this. Characters and numbers are recognized and the software tries to rebuild the original document in a Word or XLS file.
This is a great tool for authors. They can now sell their old paper books in digital formats. EBooks are in demand and the market is rapidly growing.
Protect Your Information with Non-Destructive Book Scanning

The digital copies of books can be stored on your smartphone that makes reading them so easier and handy.
When it comes to scanning books, professional companies make use of manual and automatic book scanners . Both the methods are used. However, non-destructive book scanning is preferably done using automatic scanners. We can leave the decision to the company to whom we approach for book scanning.

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...

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...
