Renting the Café book scanner has allowed us to scan our inventory of index cards that house important student-athlete information that is not captured anywhere else.
Previously, these cards had been kept in boxes. Now that we have digital files, we can look them up easily and quickly. This would never have been possible without the Café book scanner.
The unusual size of the cards meant that scanning these cards on a normal scanner would require cropping – a tall order for 17,000 cards. The scans of the cards are extremely crisp and legible.
Furthermore, we can use the Café software to make the files searchable PDFs. Thank you to Julie and the Ristech team for making this project a success!
