Library users have become acclimated to immediate access to digital information and rapid delivery of interlibrary loans in electronic format. The fact that a large quantity of scientific literature, including grey literature, only exists in print, and the financial cost associated with subscription electronic products are two issues that limit e-access. To meet the current need for e-science the scanner is currently an important part of library services. This presentation provides a review of five flatbed scanners chosen for document delivery, institutional repository digitization projects, and general patron use in a small research facility. Helpful scanning hints and technology review sources will also be discussed.
