Want to learn more about digitizing, scanning, and imaging?
Join us on November 6-7 for a day and half conference with colleagues and
vendors doing just that, all in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Scanning Forum 2006 conference web site and registration available:
This year's theme: Balancing Quality, Automation, and Service?

Come listen to a keynote breakfast talk on "Moving Libraries from Books to
Bytes," by Dr. Lotfi Belkhir, CEO of Kirtas Technologies, Inc.  Listen and
discuss with colleagues the current and emerging technology and workflow
for scanning and imaging at a range of services: Interlibrary Loan and
Document Delivery, Rare materials and Special Collection scanning,
Alternate Text Production, Digital Library production, and Electronic

We encourage attendees to be active participants; from registration (we ask
you a few questions about what you are current challenges and plans for the
next year), to sessions that encourage questions and answers, and to lunch
and other sessions with interest groups.

The conference will be held in the Doubletree Hotel Charlottesville, very
near the Charlottesville airport (CHO), and you can easily visit nearby
sites: University of Virginia, Monticello, etc.

We hope to see you November 6-7, 2006.
