Whether you’re a researcher, a student, a biologist or an author, your research is an invaluable asset. It’s the only copy of your hard work, and contains essential information. If something where to happen to your notebook, years of effort could be lost in an instant. It makes sense to protect that information, but how can you do that? The simplest way is to make use of paper notebook scanning services. These services transform your notes into digital format, protecting them essentially forever.

Paper Notebook Scanning Services

What Notebooks Can Be Scanned?

Simply put, any notebook can be scanned. It’s a relatively simple process that takes the physical notes in your notebook and transforms them into a digital format. Once converted, those notes can be stored on your computer or through your preferred cloud platform. You can access them, use them, and even modify them in many instances.

Why Scan Paper Notebooks?

As mentioned, your notebook is the only place that information appears. It’s your own unique body of work. If something were to happen to it, that information would be lost forever. Would you be able to duplicate it again? Chances are good that you wouldn’t be able to, at least not without a significant amount of effort, if at all.

With paper notebook scanning service, you’re prepared for whatever disaster might come your way. Your original notebook could be lost. It could be damaged by a liquid spill, or destroyed in a fire. It could be stolen, or any number of other things might happen. However, if the information in your notebook has been digitized, that loss will be easier to bear. You’ll still have access to all your research, notes, background information and anything else contained in those pages.

Another benefit of paper notebook scanning service is the ability to share those documents with others. Maybe you’re collaborating with another researcher, or a lab on the other side of the country. If your information is locked up in a physical notebook, it can be difficult or impossible to share. However, if that information has been digitized, it can easily be shared through email or a download link.

Work with an Ethical Company

Obviously, your notebook will contain sensitive information. It might be proprietary research data, or it could be the plot and outline for the next great American novel. In all these instances, that information is your intellectual property, and it’s essential that you work with a scanning company that not only understands that, but honors it and protects your information as well.

    •   I contacted eRecords for a small-scale scanning job. Although they usually work on large projects, Pankaj was more than willing to help with what I was looking for! The scans that came back were high quality, and delivered in a timely matter. eRecords was also the business that quoted me the most competitive price. I would definitely recommend - Pankaj is knowledgable and a great collaborator to work with on meeting any scanning service you may need.

    •   I have used eRecordsUSA on three separate occasions and each job was performed exceptionally. All files scanned at high resolution, organized, and returned in a timely manner. Pricing was also very reasonable for such time-intensive work. Management was also very good with their communication.

      I am a digital nomad that owns zero paper, so having all of my files in Google Drive is imperative. With Google's OCR (Optical Coherence Recognition) I can now find my files at lightning speed. ie - I search for [deed], [roof repair], [assessment], etc. and all relevant files "automagically" appear.

    •   EXCELLENT quality work. VERY professional. I had some kids art work scanned high resolution that was too large for the scanners at copy shops. eRecordsUSA did a fantastic job and I highly recommend them.

    •   Erecords scanned 56 bankers boxes of legal case files and other professional documents for me. This was a particularly difficult and complex job because, in naming files, they had to work from both a written file inventory and the file names on the folders themselves and use a consistent file naming protocol that Erecords and I agreed upon. They did an outstanding job of following this file naming protocol and organizing the documents in digital form to create the file structure that I intended. This job was also difficult because of the variety of page sizes and the age and condition of some of the documents; they managed to accurately capture everything. They also made the job easier for me by picking the documents up at my home. Pankaj at E records was invariably courteous and helpful and spent the time needed with me before the job to develop a digital file structure to make the documents most useful. I highly recommend Erecords for document scanning.

    •   I chose eRecords to scan over 2000 pages of yearbooks and several hundred photos from the early 90's to early 00's. I was not disappointed. They were one of the few locations in the Bay Area that I contacted that let me drop off and pickup the material in person. The JPG and PDF scans that they sent me were extremely high quality and OCR'd the yearbooks so I can search for text. They were able to repair one of my yearbook's bindings to the point where I couldn't even find the repair! This place is professional and good value for what I received. If something ever happened to my irreplaceable yearbooks and photos I know they're digitized now and backed up to multiple locations on my network and cloud! Highly recommended, Pankaj and eRecords!

    •   I found eRecordsUSA on an internet search and contacted them to inquire about scanning to PDFs a set of some six hundred old, faded, tattered pages of an underground/community newspaper I co-founded fifty years ago.  I lucked out on this first call, finding a most professional, efficient, accessible, top notch company to help me archive my newspaper despite these trying, pandemic times.
