I think this is the right place to get an answer to my question. I have a good collection of books. Some of the rare books are passed over by my uncle. I tried scanning the books using the canon scanner but shadows are appearing when scanned. Few books are very old to difficult to scan. I read about converting documents into digital format (http://www.ashconversions.com/resources
) using digital imaging technology. Is it possible to do so, in my situation too? If not, please suggest some other method.
