From a Radio Iowa Report:
A copy of the Iowa Constitution is now available in digital form on-line. Interim State Librarian, Barb Corson, says it is something they have wanted to do, and a new piece of equipment allowed them to follow through.
The scanner cost the state $23,000 and Corson says it is used for a variety of documents. She says it took around one year to plan out how to scan the document, and that included an escort by a state trooper from the Secretary of State’s office to the building where it was scanned.
The original document contains 40 pages of text, while the scanned version has 94 images that include the front and back cover.
