7. Storage Requirements

The scanning process will produce image or text files on the machine you are using. Image files, particularly ones scanned at high resolution, can occupy a lot of disk storage space, possibly running into several megabytes per image, which is much more than will fit on a floppy disk. The scanning machines have zip drives and, on one of the PCs, a CD-writer. You will need to provide suitable disks in order to use these drives, and be able to read the disks elsewhere. Smaller images may also be able to be transported by sending them to yourself as email attachments.
