Our regular readers may have noticed that we are currently trialling a new piece of microform scanning equipment in the NAL reading room: the UScan UF-Series Universal Film Scanner.

The UScan UF-Series can read, scan, print and save images from a wide range of film media such as roll microfilm, microfiche and slides. Digitised images created from these media can be saved to a USB stick in a similar way to our Bookeye book scanners.

As with our other copying equipment, the UScan UF-Series is a walk-up scanner designed for low-volume public use. There is a built-in basic instruction video to get you started. NAL Staff are busy familiarising themselves with the new arrival and are happy to assist any readers who would like to try out the new scanner. We would be very interested to hear what you think about it!

Other copying news: from today (1 April 2016) we are increasing the cost of our admin charge for remote copying requests to £15.00 per order. The cost per scanned image remains at £1.00 per image (excluding VAT).

Full details of all our current copying services can be found on our NAL Copying Services page.
