Check out Plustek OpticBook scanners. Relatively inexpensive, quick, and quality scan. The link to the Plustek website is http://plustek.com/usa/products/opticbook-series/.

Subject: [Athen] Face-Up Scanners or Stand-Along Scanners

Hi All,
Happy Friday (and sorry for the cross posting)...

Are any of you using (or do your libraries have) face-up scanners or stand-alone scanners? I have a Canon-DR 9080C for alternate format production, but am looking for alternatives to traditional flat-bed scanning for Library books, print reserves, etc. (those times when it's not practical to take the binding off the book). It's not practical or efficient to use a traditional flat-bed scanner (not to mention the quality of flat-bed scanning - flipping the book around, bending the spine, the curvature near the binding, etc).

Wondering if face-up scanners or stand-alone scanners would meet this need, if the speed and quality of the scan is acceptable?

Any help or guidance you may have would be appreciated! Makes/models and prices would also be welcomed!
