Notebook Holder for Optimum Hand Scanning

The figures show a data source book, especially adapted for hand scanning of the data source material contained on pages within the book. The book is held in a down-to-up page turning orientation, so that both left-handed and right- handed people can pass a hand-held scanner over source material contained on the pages with equal convenience.

When in the down position, the pages are held at an angle in the range of 10 to 15 degrees with respect to a supporting table top.

To compensate for the additional reach required, pages in the up position are held at an angle within the range of 115 to 125 degrees from the table top. The down-to-up orientation has the added advantage of providing a clear work area when the book is placed in the closed up position, as shown in Fig. 3.
