None of our flatbed scanners have survived more than three or four years. However, we now have a KIC scanner (http://www.imageaccess.com/dlsg/products_kic.htm) that is quick, easy to use and durable. Don't know the cost, but I don't think they're cheap. However, thought I'd pass along.

Here's a video from UTSA showing how it works: http://lib.utsa.edu/Kic/

Subject: [Web4lib] Flatbed scanner recommendations

We are replacing several flatbed scanners in our public area.  We have had bad luck with a HP Scanjet 8270.  We also are purchasing a book scanner to relieve the stress on the other scanners.  Could you recommend a general use flatbed scanner model, hopefully with an automatic document feeder, that will stand up to the use of college students?
