Dave Dowell visited the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and encountered a bunch of new Ricoh Aficio MP C4501 copiers in the building, all wrapped in plastic and obviously having recently been delivered. Dave asked some questions and found that the new machines will replace all the older photocopiers with the switchover scheduled for April 26. Hey, that's today!
The 18 all-in-one copiers will replace the current 14 book copiers and 15 print release stations. The new machines will copy or print or scan to flash drives or similar media. OCR capacity will be available. Click on the image to the right to see a larger picture.
