I think maybe someone already answered this question, but check out Fujitsu
ScanSnap sv600. You have to turn the pages, but it will scan both pages in
one pass. It takes some getting used to, however.

Subject: [Athen] textbook scanning without cutting up the book?

Greetings, ATHEN list,

Our accessible media creation team is wondering if there are any good
solutions for scanning books rapidly that don't require us to cut the
binding off a book.

There is a push to use student provided textbooks instead of our DS office
purchasing the text, but our practice of cutting the binding off the book
would seem to be contraindicated in that case.

Any information or solutions you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Our research indicates that some scanning solutions of this type are on the
market but of course we are wondering about their reliability / quality at
