In the July 07, 2009 newsletter, I posted an article entitled, Kirtas Offers Digitized Books. I described the thousands of e-books now available online from Kirtas Technologies. I also briefly mentioned the company's book scanner, which can scan up to 2400 pages per hour.
Todd Whiting, Manager or Marketing Operations at Kirtas Technologies has now posted a comment at the end of that earlier article stating that my figures are out of date. Todd writes:
"Three new partners are coming on board that will push us over 1,000,000 books this summer, and over 2,000,000 by year's end.
"In addition, we have just announced 3 new scanners at ALA in Chicago. KABIS III will scan at a rate of 3,000 pages per hour."
