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
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.

shadows and distortions are eliminated and thick books are scanned without

The Plustek EZ BookScan Center copies, scans
and prints ledger size -- making legal and archiving work effortless
Haydel has been a successful Deputy Clerk of Court in Franklin, Louisiana for
many years. Becky’s responsibilities include scanning and archiving all of the
original documents filed with the City for land pre servation purposes. The job
role requires her to ensure that all public documents and records are available
to the general public for review and copying in an ongoing and timely manner.
Her scanning duties become even more sensitive (and time intensive) when it comes
to scanning aged (and often bound) documents that are susceptible to damage
when scanning in the traditional fashion.
the Plustek EZ BookScan Center several times throughout the day to produce
copies of the original documents that have been bound into book volumes,”
explained Becky. “This Plustek GreenScan System saves me time because it allows
me to scan my next document page while the first page is printing.”
the courthouse had an old book copier that was modified by Binder Minder and
still worked, it would not allow them to copy up to the book’s binding. Adam
Crappel, of A & E Office Machines, Inc., spoke to Becky about a different
option. He introduced the idea of using the Plustek EZ BookScan Center which
consists of a Plustek OpticBook A300 scanner, kiosk-like software, and a
touch-screen computer, and printer that would operate similarly to their
original copier, but would provide more features. This solution proved more
efficient with better copy quality and ease, using touch screen display
allowing her to see the scanned document before it printed.

convenient, efficient and produces quality images. The Plustek EZ BookScan
Center scans an A3-size page in just 2.4 seconds, creating a crisp, sharp
image, which can then be turned into different formats. The solution includes
highly effective image processing, fast and secure PDF conversion and highly
accurate optical character recognition (OCR) software. The scanned output can
be saved to a flash drive or shared network folder, sent to an email address,
printer or FTP site, Becky found these features in the Plustek EZ BookScan
Center more advantageous than the features in their previous photocopier/software
Plustek GreenScan System is very useful in producing excellent scanned copies
from our older bound records,” said Becky. “Producing quality images and saving
me time makes my job easier.”
Becky’s main responsibilities is assisting anyone doing research with the
court’s records. “Saving time on scanning documents has allowed me to give
assistance to those who need it, when they need it.”
Plustek EZ BookScan Center is an ideal solution for libraries, schools, graphic
designers, publishing companies, hospitals, law firms, court houses and
financial institutions. The Plustek EZ BookScan Center scans thick books
without unbinding or dismantling them, making it a perfect solution for
digitizing and preserving precious and valuable books. Particularly useful with
bound materials, the Plustek EZ BookScan Center also includes a patented design
that eliminates the book spine shadow and text distortion of traditional book
copying and scanning. Plustek’s patent-pending SEE? Technology (Shadow
Elimination Element) combines a patented lamp light with a special edge design
that allows the scanning module to scan right up to where the book spine is
placed. This clever design avoids the need for a large, expensive overhead
scanner or complicated image-editing software. With Plustek’s SEE? Technology
and the Plustek GreenScan System’s clearly-scanned pages, Becky is able to
produce perfect scan results, even near the binding.
