Elarscans serve students of leading university in Czech Republic
Masaryk University in Brno is the most popular university in Czechia. It was founded in 1919 by one of the first decrees of young independent Czechoslovak Republic. Library of Economics and administration faculty received book scanners “ElarScan” in summer of 2018, students and staff use new professional equipment for self-digitization of literature, as well as to upload their own works and documents to University servers.
“In particular, ElarScan book scanners consider a robust design that promises long-term use of the device, as well as a simple user interface that, together with the foot pedal, contributes to quick orientation and effective scanning even for library visitors who are first to meet the book scanner. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service, which not only promptly resolved the initial minor complications, but also provided a perfect adjustment of functionality and control interface according to our requirements, — says Jiří Poláček, Head of Science Center.”
“Elarscan A2-400 is located in the working area on the top floor, and a more powerful model A2-600 stands on the lower level of the Center, near the entrance, right in the reading room with open access literature. — commented Sebastian Fešar, sales manager of ‘iGuana CZ’ company www.elarscan.cz — partner of ELAR Corporation in Czech Republic and Slovakia. — Scanners are equipped with integrated touch-screen monitors which allow to control the scanner by one hand — without a mouse and keyboard. Handling and interface are simple and intuitive, no special training is required. Elarscans are smart and comfortable machines, they sublimate a great experience of scanning, and we expect that they will be widely used in our universities.”
