Conversion of hard copies to electronic files

Many times we may like to convert hard copies to electronic medium by
scanning them. Theosophists world-wide are a minuscule in numbers and many
are acquainted with each other. With the scanners becoming inexpensive,
there would be an urge to convert hard copies of documents to a pdf file.
However, we want to avoid re-inventing the wheel by trying to scan hard copy
books and periodicals wasting time and labor. Anytime, we are embarking on a
scanning project, it would be a good idea to inquire if anyone has already
done it because many times someone has done it and there is no publicity
about it.

An easy way is to post a message in theosophical forums such as theos-talk
and theosnet ning inquiring. If some one has already done it, they will
surely contact the inquirer and most likely off-line. Recently, when I was
contemplating a scanning project, I was surprised to find that some one else
had already done it, thus saving all the effort of re-inventing the wheel.
