We are deeply in love with the Canon Scanfront-style scanners. They duplex, are small footprint, and run OCR on the documents before saving. They save us a ton of time. We have two right now, one is a very old (8 years old) Canon Scanfront 220P, and a newer Canon Scanfront 330.

Subject: [Athen] Need advice on new scanner for alt textbook scanning

Hello all,
Well, my Canon DR-3080-C has finally given up its life. It was a tremendous long-life workhorse! I've gone through some of the old threads, those I could find anyway, looking to see what you all have favored. But, most of the threads I've found were at least a yr or 2 old.

Has anyone recently replaced or added to their tech with newer scanners? What brand are you favoring? I'm kind'a partial to Canon because I've had such good experiences overall with the brand, but I'm not married to them if someone has found a better scanner. I'm a one-person dept., scanning about 100 books a year - those I can't find on AccessText because of heavy customization by our institution. What I'm looking for in my next scanner is duplex, hi-speed, hi-res, and hopefully a document feeder.
