Students' project revolutionizes BYU library digitization

Students' project revolutionizes BYU library digitization. Braley Dodson. Daily Herald. Apr 13, 2016.
     The Mass Archival Scanning System (MASS) was created by a group of seven engineering students working with staff at the Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University.  The system is a way to speed up the process of digitizing documents from the manuscript collections.  The system, which can work eight to 10 times faster, uses an automatic rotating table that moves the documents under a camera inside a hood that controls the lighting. Once the document is imaged, the table rotates to the next document.
