WHEN: Sunday, January 29, 2012 from 11am–4pm at the BrainSilo Hackerspace.

Wish you could study faster, search through all your books in seconds like Google does (even when unavailable on Google), and get digital editions of those books currently unavailable through Amazon, Barnes and Nobles’ or other online providers? Come learn how!

The Paper Upgrade Project (http://www.paperupgrade.org) will teach you to build your own high-speed (2000 pages per hour) book scanner from inexpensive parts! Daniel Reetz, the hardware guru who started the DIY book scanning project, will lead the discussion and assembly. We will donate one of the assembled scanners to Portland State University’s Disability Resource Center (DRC). Any donations to our organization are tax free.

The Paper Upgrade Project, a 501(c)(3) IRS tax exempt public charity, is sponsoring this event (below for details).

NOTE: We are looking for volunteers! Contact us info@paperupgrade.org
