      Does anyone have any recommendations on handheld scanners? Our cataloging and archive departments are considering purchasing a handheld scanner for use in digitizing some of our more fragile books (specifically the ones that have been boxed because of age/binding, etc) and we have some concerns about the handhelds, that while it would potentially require less human hands touching the material, we don’t want to a) put anything through a feeder-type system or b) have to touch/drag/roll the scanner over the face of the document itself…We are looking, basically, for a magic wand.

      Any ideas/thoughts or experiences with this sort of thing? We do have a flatbed type scanner, but some of the items we are trying to digitze are quite large and very delicate, so handling them at all is a problem…
