State Library of Victoria
The people who visited us to look at our digitisation facilities last week returned the favour and showed me theirs this week. They have three (yes 3!) Bookeye scanners. They are not perfect for everything, but I think they are needed for many bound formats. The SLV are just scanning in grey scale for access at this stage and have not bothered with OCR for printed text.
Above you can also see an image of their map scanner with decent layout tables each side of it.
The last image is a light box that they fashioned themselves for their own glass plate negative program.
