Responses to Scanner Inquiry on Medlib-L Listserv on Internet.
 
Mary Janeck, Medical Library. St. Marys Hospital, Madison, WI

<:#1728,9360>I have had the scanner since late last year. The most common use is for preparing presentations. That is, being able to take a cartoon, drawing, diagram etc. and put it into a Powerpoint presentation. Also it is used, naturally, for scanning in pre-wordproc
essing documents, so they can be altered, saved etc. It was originally mainly purchased as a result of the decision to put all policy & procedure manuals on computer, and many of them contained things that originated from other sources - handouts etc. they
they wanted to format in a standardized way.
 
<:#288,9360>
 
<:#288,9360>I hope this is useful.

<:#2304,9360>We use a Fujitsu scanner and M/Series Professional Software from Caere, which was bought by Calera last year.  We have been very satisfied with the results WHEN DOCUMENTS ARE OF GOOD QUALITY. It's the middlin'-to-lousy quality that gets problematic. I am wo
rking in a corporate setting where people, especially high-level-executive-type-people, seem to expect a scanner to produce perfect files at the touch of a button. In fact, mediocre-to-poor documents take a good amount of editing and retyping to produce ASC
II files. I find that user education is a big part of my job in this area. For "user education" read: "Correcting impression left by scanner sales rep."
 
<:#288,9360>
 
<:#576,9360>As discussed before on this list--image files (TIFFs etc.) are not such a problem.  In a corporate environment it is ASCIIs that people want and usually instantly.
 
<:#288,9360>
 
<:#288,9360>....................................................
 
<:#288,9360>
 
<:#3168,9360>Couple of suggestions I may offer on scanners is to get the best you can afford, (dpi, resolution, and add on options.)  Check the WWW for reviews. One that caught my eye was the Epson 1000c ($800) There are models up from this one as well.  The one thing t
hat I found might be useful with this scanner and I imagine others might do this as well is the add on that allows you to scan overheads and x-rays.  If you have any plans for or currently have a website you may be able to make use of scanned x-ray images f
or educational purposes. You never know what might need to be scanned.  One way the web has been utilized here is a training tool.  An html document that you can read with a browser but not necessarily post to the Web could include handwritten notes, x-rays
, photos of inhouse locations.  You could actually design a tour package for new employees utilizing the scanner to upload photos of the different spots throughout the hospital.  Just ideas.  Hope they are useful.
 
<:#288,9360>................................................................................

<:#864,9360>We use a scanner in interlibrary loan to scan articles which we send to other libraries via Ariel.  In other areas in the library, scanners are used to include better quality images in library publications, and for the creation of posters and slide shows...
