One of the jobs of a library is to provide document images to other libraries in what is known as the interlibrary loan service. The Central Library at Hiroshima University had problems copying badly damaged magazine-format documents, which are in high demand. They had even resorted to using a digital camera.
The installation of an SV600 contactless scanner has simplified the job of copying damaged or large-format material. It also enables images to be enhanced through use of such helpful features as Book Image Correction and Point Retouch.
