The UNIVERISTY OF KANSAS SCHOOL OF MEDICINE
ON SALINA CAMPUS GOES GREEN WITH HELP FROM PLUSTEK’S ST BOOKSCAN CENTER
Plustek Helps Medical Campus achieve its Goal to Go Digital
The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Salina opened in July 2011 as an innovative medical education program designed to address the shortage of rural doctors in the United States. The goal of the program is to attract medical students with a strong interest in practicing rural medicine and encourage them to stay and build their own practices in rural areas after earning their degrees and completing their residencies. The new campus’ curriculum is tied to the classroom offerings at the KU Medical Center’s campuses in Kansas City and Wichita. The learning process relies heavily on video-conferencing, with students in Salina participating in lectures with their peers in other cities and receiving many of their lectures via podcast.
To keep the program functioning at its highest potential, Salina campus leaders decided that the best way to streamline costs was to go green by using products such as scanners that are more cost-effective than printers and reduce paper waste.
School administrators reviewed their options and were leaning toward a large and expensive book scanner that had been used with great success on another campus. Before deciding on purchasing it, they were introduced to Plustek’s ST BookScan Center, which offered features similar to the larger scanner but was more cost-effective. Because of its size and price point, KU School of Medicine-Salina administrators opted for the ST BookScan Center. They believed the ST BookScan Center was a good match for the school’s highly computerized curriculum. School administrators believe the medical students will find it more suited to the electronic delivery of course materials than a traditional copier. 2
“We’re hosting a new generation of students who are much more comfortable and tech-savvy than ever before, so I’m sure they will think of endless ways to use the scanner in ways we haven’t even discovered,” said Lucy Kolhoff, senior coordinator, KU School of Medicine, Salina campus. “Because of the distance from the main school, our campus uses digital methods of communication, so the ST BookScan Center works well with what we’ve been trying to create, which is a highly accessible place to learn and retrieve information quickly.”
Currently, Kolhoff is using the ST BookScan Center for archiving and digitizing documents that are easily sent to the main campus. The scanner is located in an accessible spot that allows medical students to readily scan library materials to thumb drives and emails as well. Kolhoff believes that the Plustek ST BookScan Center would be ideal for businesses and educational facilities that rely heavily on paper and toner but want to go green. Kolhoff said that its user-friendly software made the ST BookScan Center simple to understand and easy to use.
An ideal alternative to the copier, the Plustek ST BookScan Center can scan books and large format documents to a USB flash drive, shared network folder, FTP site, email address or even a printer. The system is easy to use and does not require user training. Prompts on the touch screen display guide users through the scanning process and enable them to save books, bound materials and documents in a variety of formats including searchable PDF. The ST BookScan Center was created based on the concept of book preservation, digitization of content and sharing of the book electronically. It can scan up to A3 size page (12” x 17”) in just 2.4 seconds. Thanks to Plustek’s patent pending SEE technology, spine shadows and distortions are eliminated and thick books are scanned without unbinding or dismantling making it a perfect solution for digitizing precious and valuable books and documents. The optional coin-op/card-op payment system can be added for organizations that want to generate revenue from the use of the system.

Case Study: Text-to-Speech Scanning Significantly Increases Access to Library Materials for Visually Impaired Students
Contact: Jennifer Thomé
More than 30% of visually impaired students use auditory readers to extract written information and convert it into text1, but the process is often cumbersome and creates documents with many inaccuracies. The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind has successfully implemented a scanning procedure using the Plustek OpticPro A320 large format A3 book scanner and OpenBook software that improves the speed and accuracy of book scanning and allows greater access for all visually impaired students.
Digitizing printed materials is an important aspect of providing accessibility services to the visually impaired at libraries, schools and universities, yet has been plagued by a major challenge: traditional scanners were slow and incapable of producing the quality of scans needed for OCR (optical character recognition) software to perform at its best. The result was inaccurate character rendering that were difficult to understand by visually impaired students and required additional editing by administrators
The Florida School for the Dead and the Blind has been using the OpticPro A320 in conjunction with OpenBook software to digitize text for visually impaired students. In their process, an administrative assistant will scan each book using the A320 and OpenBook software , which was specifically designed to enhance success for people who are blind or have low vision and who need access to printed and electronic materials.
Administrative Assistant Robin Felder has been using the Plustek OpticPro A320 to scan books for visually impaired students with great success. She initially chose the scanner for its speed,but was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of its scans. In an interview she told Plustek that the editing she had to do with the scans from her previous machine had all but been eliminated since using the A320.
Felder also expressed that being able to place the whole book on the scanner and still get a scan without distortion greatly expedited her workflow, and that it took only seconds to scan each page. She is now able to finishing scanning a 500 to 600 page book every three days or so.
The A320 was designed by Plustek to offer a low-cost, high-resolution device that works on both graphics and text. The A320 uses high-resolution Sony CCD (charge-coupled device), which combines with a high quality lens to generate 1,600 dpi optical resolution. In layman’s terms,this combination of technology allows it to it “see” more details on the original document.
Along with this powerful coupling, Plustek also designed an image tuning technology that optimizes the interaction between hardware and software. It works by smoothing out pixels and creating better balance between highlights and shadows, rending a much clearer and enhanced image quality, regardless of output type.
Established in 1986, Los Angeles-based Plustek is a leader in scanning solutions. Their products include high-speed document scanners, mobile, USB-powered scanners, book scanners, as well as security equipment and film scanners. Their OpticPro A320 (MSRP $549) is a large-format A3 flatbed scanner. The Advanced OpticBook A300 (MSRP $1,699) is a large-format A3 book scanner that comes bundled with Book Pavilion software and has a beveled edge that eliminates nearly all distortions caused by a book’s binding.
