Hmm, that's interesting. We're still on the look-out for something that can
scan DEC fiche, which IIRC is 16 x 13 pages per fiche. Of course the actual
scanning's only half the problem - there's also the issue of feeding the data
in and out of the scanner if it's going to be used for any kind of
preservation work, rather than one-off scans.
We've got about a million ICL fiches too that could benefit from scanning, but
luckily those are just a single A4 page per fiche and so a little more manageable.
