Digitize your own books: The Book Ripper Project

Here's an interesting open source hardware/software project that enables digitizing books cheaply, at 600-900 pages an hour.

From http://bkrpr.org/

Quote:
Bkrpr is a set of free software and hardware that helps you digitize books. Some of our hardware designs make it easy to photograph all the pages in a book without harming the book. Other designs allow you to remove the binding so the pages can be dropped into a sheet-fed scanner. Whichever method you use, the resulting images can be processed with our software to make user-friendly files in a variety of formats.
