Celina has a rich and colorful history and is currently participating in the Texas Historical Commission "Visionaries in Preservation" program, working on establishing historic districts, with restoration and reuse of historic structures. The challenge was that some of the newspapers date back as far as the early 1900's, and have begun to deteriorate. Many of them fall apart when lifted from the boxes in which they are stored. Scott recommended the IDEAL / Contex COPYmate scanner and WideImage operating software. This flatbed scanner with an 18" x 24" scan area, fast scanning speed and easy operation has made the scanning project a success.
