The book scanner is back!

This week, I spent a lot of time with the book scanner. The scanner resides in the Special Collections Reading Room and has been out of commission for quite a long time. Each week I come in hoping that maybe it will be working again. This week the scanner was up and running again! I’m not particularly excited to work with the book scanner, as its a little more tedious than working with other scanners, but it was nice to finish up a few projects! Last week, I reached a point in my work where all I had left to do for the San Antonio Water Company Oral History Collection was to scan the covers of the transcriptions with the book scanner. It seems strange that I have now completed nearly an entire box of transcriptions! I’m looking forward to new documents, but part of me will miss the amount of personal information that comes from oral history interviews.
