Radically improved self-service copying is available at the National Library of Scotland with the introduction of new Book2Net scanners.

Users of the General Reading Room now have a wider range of options for copying material from NLS collections. They can:

  • Produce digital colour images and save them to a USB memory stick
  • Achieve high-quality scans and prints
  • Copy to A3 size, not just A4.

Preservation-friendly book cradles and LED lighting on the Book2Net scanners also open up more of the collections to self-service copying.

To encourage more environmentally friendly digital scanning, we charge only 10p per scan to memory stick (20p per print). Customers can either use their own USB stick or buy a 1GB stick for £4.
