New Scanner for Theology on the Web

After seven years my Canon 9000f scanner failed last week. This left me in a very difficult position, as I am in the middle of digitising the remaining issues of The Churchman and have another much larger project starting soon. My current funding level being insufficient to bear this additional cost, I launched a GoFundMe campaign and shared it on Facebook.

I am delighted to report that after only two days I have received enough from the appeal to order a replacement scanner. After much helpful discussion on Facebook I opted for an Epson Perfection V600, which has now arrived. I am impressed by the quality of the scanning software, which includes a text optimisation feature which will greatly reduce the amount of post-scan image processing I need to do. I wanted to thank publically those who responded so generously to my request for help. I am greatly encouraged that so many find the websites helpful and are willing to show their appreciation by actively supporting the work.
