MEI and its network of partners offers the best technology and solutions to meet all of your scanning needs.

We are able to  scan bound books, cut sheet documents, newspapers, microfilm, microfiche, slides and much more.

MEI also specializes in managing complex projects which may incorporate multiple source source materials and multiple output requirements.


Every project is different, and we will help steer your project in the right direction. The first step in doing this is to understand your goals.

Do you want archival images? Are you trying to save space? Do you want to reprint a book? Would you like your content to be hosted online? Do you want your content to be delivered in a searchable text format?

These are just a few of the many decisions involved in executing a scanning project. And if you answer “yes” to more than one of the above scenarios, we can tailor your project to deliver multiple, use-specific derivatives.
