Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) transforms images with text such as scans of historical documents, books chapters, or even a handout from your class into machine readable and searchable data. OCR opens up a realm of possibilities for research and accessibility. This workshop demonstrates the basic uses of OCR software and gives an overview of OCR software available in the Scholarly Commons, including a demonstration of performing OCR with Adobe Acrobat Pro. As a result of this workshop, you will be able to identify which OCR software is suitable for your needs. https://guides.library.illinois.edu/OCR
