There are plenty of qualities to consider when scanning a normal document or book—from the type of scanner needed to the way the resulting digital file should be organized—but it’s even a little tougher when handling a rare or fragile book. At QFI, Inc., we’ll take every step necessary to ensure your fragile, rare, or archival books are scanned, digitized, and returned to you with zero damage to the original!
Some book scanners require the book to be dismantled before the digitization process can begin, but at QFI we utilize non-destructive scanners that allow the book to remain completely intact. This means you can have your book scanned into a digital file or converted into an e-Book while keeping the physical book in its original state.
If you need to scan rare or fragile books and convert them to digital files, call QFI in Maryland today!
How Non-Destructive Book Scanning Works
QFI digitizes books with our book2net Kiosk, which converts books or documents up to 17″ by 22″ to many file formats. The book2net Kiosk has a 70 megapixel sensor and can scan a book up to five inches in depth and up to an “A2” paper size! The integrated image enhancement our scanner is equipped with enables us to achieve great image quality. The book2net Kiosk can convert books into virtually any file format, including:
- PDF (Learn more about how to turn a book into a PDF here)

Converting Books to eBooks
Did you know that your physical books can be turned into e-Books? E-Books are perfect for on-the-go reading while traveling or for when you simply have many books you want to access in one place without having to carry them around. QFI can take your book—whether it is a fragile historical manuscript or a modern-day book—and convert it into a file format that e-Readers can understand. After your books have been digitized, you can enjoy them on the go—anywhere, anytime!
