I am new to EText/EBook technology but have need of it now. I'm organizing genealogical and family history material and feel EBook would serve me well. Old family histories are fragile and scarce. Libraries decline to lend them creating a hardship on researchers. I have several books that I would love to have constant access to and so I'm making arrangements to scan them. One is unavailable except as a microfilm from the LDS church library. I'm at a loss. How does one create such an EBook without losing the clarity of a direct capture. The print mechanism for such machines is difficult to read and so scanning a printed page would be expensive and ineffective.
